YOUR ADDED VALUE. FOR PROFESSIONAL GOALS. YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT STUDIES.
Everything is in motion, and of course, as efficiently as possible. This is what your Master’s programme in Supply Chain Management is all about. If you already have gained some professional experience and now want to take your career to the next level in an exciting field, this challenging degree will certainly bring you forward. As an aspiring expert, you will understand the complexity of global trade along the entire value chain and be able to control and manage it accordingly. At the same time, you will optimise processes and design supply chains as ecologically and socially as possible – for a better global footprint.
Your Master’s programme in Supply Chain Management will train you as a specialist to successfully plan, control and optimise cross-company value creation processes. This will be done on both an economic and practical level at the same time. You will approach issues such as sustainability, innovation and competitiveness within the framework of global network relationships in a comprehensive manner and put them in the context of digitisation, climate protection and security of supply. At the same time, you will learn the relevant leadership, methodological and practical skills to take on a manager position later on. You will also learn about client-oriented customisation, just-in-time deliveries, IT security and data protection. This knowledge is relevant and valuable for your future employers. Therefore, it also promises maximum added value for you.
