Logistics and Transport Management

Building on the theoretical and practical knowledge conveyed in their undergraduate studies, students get the chance in the master degree programme “Logistics and Transport Management” to gain in-depth knowledge and skills that will qualify them for leadership positions in industry, trade and logistics services companies. Through teaching which combines practice with sound theoretical knowledge, graduates of the programme will be familiar with all relevant areas and problems of the economy. This will arm and empower them with the specialised knowledge for management positions in the logistics sector in particular.

Focus areas

Consumers and companies take it for granted that the right product will be available at the right time and location, and at the price and quality they expect. This is possible thanks to increasingly digitalised and international transport, warehousing and transshipment processes, which are planned and implemented by logistics professionals.
