Perspectives in logistics
An analysis of the labour market has shown the strong demand for qualified supply chain managers by industrial, retail, consulting, and software companies as well as by logistical service providers.
It is no longer only products or companies that compete with each other but entire supply chains and value networks. Central to the competitiveness of individual companies or whole value creation systems is the integration of the individual elements. This is where supply chain management plays a crucial role. The integration is managed especially by designing holistic, integral processes and embedding these in information systems. Aside from the technical point of view, it is important to consider the human component and the related interpersonal approach in value systems. This mindset is reflected in the curriculum of our course.
Our study course builds on your existing qualifications while you continue to pursue your career. The highly relevant and up-to-date course content is designed to offer you professional and personal development and qualifications. The distance learning program puts a special focus on four main specialisations:
- Business and management,
- Supply chain management (global logistics),
- Information systems (especially ERP and SCM), and
- Personal competencies / soft skills
This enables you to define your individual professional qualification profile required to carry out a large variety of tasks in companies in different industries. The distance learning course allows you to gain evidence-based expertise on the entire design and management of local and global supply chains – and all while you continue to work in your chosen career. In the face of a growing need for companies to increase their efficiency due to ongoing globalisation processes, supply chain management concepts are of more relevance than ever. This means that companies are always on the lookout for highly qualified professionals able to identify and take advantage of opportunities and minimise risks in value and supply chains.
