Master in International Supply Chain Management fulltime

    Programme structure

    A view of the study programme

    Three pillars

    Excellence in logistics is fast becoming a key factor in companies' competitive advantage. Companies worldwide spend up to 20 or 30 percent of their overall costs on logistics, while proficiency in logistics is demanded in management positions throughout organisations.

    In sectors as varied as transport, production and banking, a degree in Supply Chain Management will gain you a place among the decision-makers.

    Programme structure

    This Master programme is built on three pillars:

    • Education consists of core, specialisation and elective modules. You can to a large extent determine your own course while developing all the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies of a professional in international business.
    • Research is the focus of the final stage of our programmes. You will complete your studies with a thesis research project, which can revolve around a theoretical subject or a project executed for an existing organisation.
    • Personal development is encouraged through a system that invites you to set your own particular study goals - and continually test those choices.


    The curriculum of the Master programme consists of general modules, specialisation modules and a cycle of guest lectures. This design was adopted to create the combination of knowledge, skills and competencies that all professionals in the business field must have.

    The first three blocks of the study programme start with a combination of general modules and specialisation modules. The general modules, which focus on management and research, provide the solid foundation of the Master Degree. The general modules are: Critical Thinking & Research Methodology, International Project, Personal Development, and managing Corporate Sustainability. The cycle of guest lectures is entitled "Global Business in Transition". The specialisation modules are: Economics & Finance for Logistics Managers, Warehouse Management, Marketing/Sales & Supply Chain Management, Transportation & Distribution, Manufacturing Planning & Control, Strategic Sourcing, Integrated Business Planning, Leading & Managing Supply Chains, and Current Trends in Supply Chain Management.
