Logistics must be effective and efficient; 'effective' means that the requirements of customers, retailers, producers and their suppliers regarding production, storage and transport processes must be met in such a way that these processes run smoothly; efficient means that processes and operational use of human resources, technology and IT systems must be managed in such a way that the benefits justify the costs incurred.

That is why managers in the field of logistics need good technical understanding as much as they need a business-oriented way of thinking. By combining specialist as well as methodical competence we equip you to become a logistics specialist with the ability to focus on  business aspects, and to become managers with a true understanding for complex relationships.

To ensure that one day you will be able to master the challenges in professional life, we focus on not only knowledge but also the method skills required, such as:

  • process analysis and modelling
  • project management
  • planning resource deployment
  • prioritising
