The International Logistics Management course focuses on marketing, production, logistics processes, internal organisation, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and purchasing. You will be trained as a specialist in these areas over the course of the four-year programme.
- First Year
Introduction to the industry
The first year is designed to provide you with a solid foundation in your chosen field. The course reviews all aspects of the logistics process, ranging from marketing, production and logistics to internal organisation and procurement. The varied curriculum provides you with the solid basis you need to make successful progress.
- Second Year
More in-depth study
In your second year, you will develop more focused and detailed knowledge, building on what you have learned so far. You will learn about issues related to HR management, procurement, business economics and international logistics, as well as the mechanics of the logistics process from raw materials to the end product. You will learn to apply your knowledge to solve complex issues and work on assignments in small groups.
- Third Year
Internship and practical experience
Your internship will let you apply your knowledge and experience. It also gives you an idea of the various careers out there, and helps you discover your best fit. You have the option to complete part of your course at one of our international campuses in Thailand, Qatar, Indonesia or South Africa. We refer to this part of the programme as the 'Grand Tour'.
- Final Year
In your fourth year, you will be taking on a practical final-year project, focusing on a specific problem. You will conduct this project at a business or organisation, which could end up becoming your future employer!
Problem-based learning (PBL) is a style of active learning in which you learn by solving problems, as well as develop your practical abilities, including verbal and written communication, conceptual thinking and English. You will chair meetings, take minutes, learn to think critically and come up with solutions together, which will give you the experience you need by the time you are ready to enter the job market.
During your studies, you can participate in a research group that studies current issues in the field and in various academic and scientific areas. This research may be conducted for our own lectureship: Green Logistics. Research queries can include subjects like sustainable transport, sustainable chain management, the biobased economy and service logistics.
