Dear Students,

welcome to a brief overview of our study program in 'Supply Chain Management'

The Success Factor –Logistics

As business becomes more and more global and therefore more complex, logistics and supply chain management turn to become a significant factor of success in every enterprise or organization. While logistic management primarily deals with the optimization of logistics processes within organizations, the integrated supply chain management deals with optimization beyond the boundaries of an enterprise. All in all supply chain management is responsible for global planning and controlling of networks. The value creation chain stretches from the source of raw materials to the end-consumer. It also includes reversing the flow of used materials and goods to recycle and disposal processes. Supply-Chain-Managers analyze, optimize and develop the business and material flow trail as well as the accompanying information flow.

Content, Objective and Course Structure

Success factor logistics

As future supply chain managers, students learn to analyze existing business and IT processes, and to plan, control and manage new ones. Besides social skills, they also acquire the subject-related know-how required for process-oriented thinking in global value creation chains.

The M.Sc. program in supply chain management is intended for holders of bachelor degrees in logistics, business or engineering studies.

Classroom course contents – focus on knowledge transfer and management competence

The consecutive supply chain management master program is focused on "management", "logistical processes" and "logistical information systems" in and for logistics-relevant industry sectors in the manufacturing, retail, and logistics service market.

1st semester
The first semester is initially dedicated to deepening your economic knowledge in the modules "International Management" and "Process Design and Management". You are going to learn how to plan, design, control and manage business processes. Where logistical know-how is concerned, the "Strategic Logistics Management" module will bolster your knowledge geared to the evaluation and application of contemporary international management practices. In the field of computer science and information technology you expand your knowledge by the module "SCM 4.0 – Technical Building Blocks". In the core area of personal competences, your communication skills will be developed by a "Communication and Knowledge Management" module – placing special emphasis on new requirements stemming from the dominant trends of digitalization and globalization. 

2nd semester
The second semester's core area of economic science is primarily dedicated to "Operations Research", which links its various disciplines with computer science. The core of information technology deals with requirements management and modeling of logistics processes in the module "Supply Chain Management Systems". If international and intra-organizational process chains are to function in an integrated manner, the parties involved in value creation chains and networks need to be able to share knowledge and information. The second semester focusses also on developing your personal skills concerning "Epistemologies and Social Sciences" in international activities, as well as the benefits of diversity, such as national, cultural, religious or gender-specific strengths.

3rd semester
The third semester is focused on the international legal conditions for designing and operating value creation networks. Building on this, the third semester then additionally focusses on the processes in supply chain management, as well as the subject of "Big Data".

4th semester
The final semester is spent at a company, where you will be working on a project while writing your master thesis.

Objectives

The master program communicates a holistic specialist and management understanding of logistics with an application-oriented bias. The course focuses on the graduates' practice-oriented qualification on a scientific basis for specialist and management functions in the logistical area in nationally and internationally active manufacturing and retail enterprises, as well as logistics-related service providers.

The program enables the students' further professional and personal development. The master program helps students drive their personal career development with the objective of gaining an internationally recognized qualification in supply chain management. By their initial degree and the formation of four specific thematic focus areas in the master course, namely

• Business and management
• Supply chain management
• Information systems (particularly ERP and SCM), and
• Personal competences / soft skills,

The students define their own professional qualification profile needed to master a broad variety of tasks in companies of various industries. The students acquire scientifically sound, expert knowledge relating to the overall design and operation of local to global value creation chains based on all logistical factors, both within and without the company.

Another objective of the master program in supply chain management resides in communicating the know-how required by students for independent and practice-oriented work in team leadership and personnel management, operative and strategic supply chain management, as well as participative and/or executive functions in IT implementation projects.

Workflow

Classroom lectures are held on the campus of the SRH University of Logistics and Economics. The program runs for 4 semesters, equaling a study period of two years. Every semester but the last one features 14 weeks of lectures and a subsequent exam phase. The 4th semester is the final practical semester where students write their final (master) thesis in a company. The practical phase of the final semester establishes intensive contacts with interesting companies and later employers – an important step on the way to a successful career start.
