More about the programme

Hear from our current students

It's quite practice-oriented, so I feel I am learning new skills every day from the real business world and from company visits and guest lectures; it’s a great way to integrate theories and practices. I enjoy the nice vibe, my smart classmates and the helpful professors, but most of all I enjoy the way the courses are designed. Our courses combine lectures and workshops in creative and interesting ways. For example, we visit a real warehouse after learning about warehouse assessing; and we go to a logistics industry fair to find innovative solutions. I feel that professors and staff work very hard to teach us as much as possible and efficiently. If you are interested in logistics or supply chain, and want to learn data analysis and elementary programming for the real business world, then this is for you! It’s a great starting point for a career in logistics, in a supply chain department or a consultancy role in these fields.
