Supply Chain Management professionals are responsible for the strategic coordination of the entire supply chain, both company-internal and between enterprises. Their aim is to optimize long-term efficiency and boost performance both within individual companies and along the entire supply chain. Graduates of our distance learning Master’s degree programme in Supply Chain Management are equipped to take on the planning and management of global value networks. Our distance learning logistics courses, designed for students already in the workforce, give students the knowledge and skills they need to analyse, optimize, and improve business and material flow processes.
Want to be sure to get off to a good start with your studies? We want that, too! For organisational reasons, we highly recommend that you turn in all necessary application documents (including official copies of your certificates) as early as possible, preferably several weeks before your studies are set to begin. This is particularly important for any forms we send you during the application process. While you can, of course, submit these documents at a later point, if we do not have them within a few weeks before the semester begins, documents such as your student I.D. may not be ready until after the start of the semester.

Perspectives in Logistics
An analysis of the labour market reveals that within the manufacturing, retail and consulting branches as well as at software companies and logistics service providers, there is a great demand for qualified supply chain managers.
Products and companies are no longer competing only with one another, but with entire supply chains and value networks. For individual companies or entire value creation systems to remain competitive, the integration of individual elements is critical. This is where supply chain management plays a crucial role. Integration is managed through specially-designed, holistic, integral processes that are embedded in information systems. Along with the technical considerations in value systems, it is important that the human component and associated interpersonal aspects be taken into account. Our curriculum reflects this principle.
Our distance learning M.Sc. in Supply Chain Management builds on students’ existing qualifications while they continue to pursue their careers. The highly pertinent and timely course content is designed to help students advance both professionally and personally. The programme particularly focuses on four main specializations:
- Business and Management
- Supply Chain Management (Global Logistics)
- Information Systems (especially ERP and SCM)
- Personal Competencies/Soft Skills
This focus allows students to shape their own individual professional profiles and equips them to carry out the wide variety of tasks required in a range of different industry branches. This distance learning M.Sc. in Supply Chain Management provides students with evidence-based knowledge on the design and management of local and global supply and value chains – while allowing them to continue to work in their chosen careers. In the face of ongoing globalization, there is a growing need for companies to increase their efficiency. This makes supply chain management concepts more relevant than ever before. As a result, companies are always on the lookout for highly qualified professionals able to identify and take advantage of opportunities while minimizing risk in value and supply chains.
