Logistics is about organising and planning flows of goods, information and people in a time-effective manner and at lowest possible costs, taking into account sustainability issues. The  Management programme focuses on economic and financial aspects of logistics.

This programme focuses on competency-based learning. This means you will acquire the knowledge, skills and attitude required in your future career. Collaboration, communication and organisational skills are key. That is why you will regularly work on real-life projects together with fellow students.

The programme is aimed at helping you to develop the competencies you will need in your future profession, which means that the education focuses both on technical training and personal development.

The Logistics Management programme is delivered to a small group of students. As a result, students and lecturers know each other by name and tend to interact in an informal manner. You study in small groups and with fellow students from many nationalities.
