Om utbildningen

The programme aims to provide students with the resources, mindset and skills necessary to build a successful career in global logistics and sustainable supply chain management. Our courses are designed to give students both solid theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical experience. They also host many feature guest lecturers from the industry and provide opportunities for students to visit and work with companies on assignments. The programme takes a multidisciplinary approach to the design, planning and management of sustainable supply chains and logistics strategies, networks, processes and systems. Students learn both quantitative and qualitative problem-solving techniques that are applied through case studies, project work, business games and simulations.

Many of our teachers are internationally acclaimed researchers who provide students with comprehensive knowledge as well as pragmatic skills and abilities. After graduation, our students will have mastered functionally-oriented problems and the ability to work cross-functionally and inter-organisationally to improve an organisations performance.
