About the Programme
“The line between disorder and order lies in logistics” Sun Tzu (Ancient Chinese military general, strategist and philosopher).
“Leaders win through logistics” Tom Peters (Management Guru)
As these quotes suggest, the freight transport and logistics discipline is increasingly recognized as pivotal to sound decision making and organizational success in meeting business objectives. The globalization of production and consumption has led to a situation where logistics decision makers must constantly strive to deal with the complex challenges associated with internationally distributed production, trade and transport networks. In order to ensure and maintain both profitability and competitiveness, organizations need to constantly review their logistical requirements in order to adapt to potentially volatile changes in customer demand and technological developments. The environmental imperative has introduced a whole new and, from a societal perspective, vitally important dynamic into the logistics and freight transport arena.
Within the EU alone, the freight transport and logistics sector employs 6 million people and has an added value of some €15 billion. Freight transport and logistics influences virtually all industrial and public sector activities and affects every citizen s daily life. The M.Sc. in Logistics and Transport Management prepares you for truly multifaceted challenges, requiring a balance between theoretical and practical skills. The programme provides an intellectually stimulating environment, within which you will develop your skills in critical thinking and analysis, as well as improving your knowledge of, and strategic perspective on, the relationships, flows, chains, processes and systems that pervade the international freight transport and logistics arena. You will analyze problems, both theoretical and real-life, and design solutions for organizations operating under uncertainty and facing complex and rapidly changing markets and technologies.
In pursuing this programme, you will benefit from our strong research and educational links with the logistics industry locally, nationally and globally. Significant emphasis is placed on the use of state-of-the-art logistical software, as well as real world examples and case studies, some of which are implemented in close cooperation with established businesses from the logistics community. Furthermore, the core logistics faculty is supplemented by prestigious international visiting professors and representatives of the business community. The programme also provides opportunities for field work in an international environment at respected universities in Europe and overseas.
Graduates from the M.Sc. in Logistics and Transport Management programme enjoy a variety of exciting and rewarding careers. For example, amongst other things, our alumni are employed as purchasers, logistics consultants, supply planners, shipping coordinators, freight forwarders, chartering agents, shipbrokers and supply chain managers. The programme comprises 60 credits of core courses, 30 credits of elective courses and a further 30 credits related to the Master’s thesis.
