The goal of the Master’s program is to provide highly interested and talented students with an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the scientific elements of logistic systems. Graduates can work on complex logistic-related problems in various settings. They are well-equipped to critically evaluate current research findings and to act responsibly.
Science and industry alike increasingly focus on topics related to cross-company cooperation within the supply chain. In this context, the concept of supply chain management (SCM) is of particular interest. By consistently embedding the above-mentioned points, SCM is systematically developed towards an “Interorganizational Operations Management”. The Master’s program in Supply Chain and Operations Management covers the entire process along the supply chain, from strategy development, design processes and procedures to execution. The Master’s program is a three-semester full-time program. The third semester is reserved for writing the Master’s thesis which is a project that covers the entire process from strategy development to execution.
