Accreditation

This M.Sc. in Supply Chain Management is accredited by the Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA) in Hannover, a foundation under public law.

A Key Factor for Success: Logistics!

As the business world becomes increasingly globalized and, therefore, increasingly complex, the importance of logistics and supply chain management as a success factor for companies and organizations is also rapidly increasing. While logistics management is primarily focused on optimizing logistics processes within enterprises, integrated supply chain management seeks to optimize processes beyond organisational boundaries. Supply chain management focuses on global planning and network monitoring. Value creation chains run the spectrum from the source of raw materials all the way to the end consumer. They also include the reversal of the flow of used materials and goods to recycling and disposal systems. Supply chain managers analyse, optimize, and improve both business and material flow trails and the accompanying information flow.

To prepare for future careers as supply chain managers, students will learn how to analyse existing business and IT processes, and to plan, control, and manage new processes. They will hone important personal skills and acquire the pertinent knowledge and skills needed for taking a process-oriented approach to global value creation chains. The M.Sc. in Supply Chain Management is intended for students who hold Bachelor’s degrees in Logistics, Business, or Engineering.

Course Content – A Focus on Knowledge Transfer and Management Skills

Courses in the Master’s degree programme in Supply Chain Management focus on management, logistical processes, and logistical information systems in and for logistics-relevant industry sectors in the manufacturing, retail, and logistics services branches.

1st Semester

In the first semester two modules, International Management and Process Design & Management, will focus on providing students with in-depth knowledge of economics. Students will learn how to plan, design, monitor, and manage business processes. Logistical expertise will be gained in the Strategic Logistics Management module, which focuses on evaluating and applying current international management practices. In the SCM 4.0 – Technical Building Blocks module, students will expand their knowledge in the areas of computer science and information technology. Finally, in the Communication and Knowledge Management module, students will have the opportunity to hone their social and communications skills. Special emphasis is placed on new requirements stemming from the dominant trends towards digitization and globalization.

2nd Semester

In the second semester, economic theory is primarily focused on operations research, which links different disciplines to computer science. In the area of information technology, the Supply Chain Management Systems module looks at requirements management and the modelling of logistical processes. For international and intra-organisational process chains to be successfully integrated, those involved in these value creation chains and networks must be able to share knowledge and information. Personal skills are further developed during the second semester in the Epistemologies and Social Sciences module, in which the focus lies on international activities and the benefits of diversity, such as national, cultural, religious, and gender-specific strengths.

3rd Semester

The third semester centres around the legal factors involved in designing and operating international value creation networks. Building upon this, the third semester courses also focus on supply chain management processes and take a look at the topic of ‘big data’.

4th Semester

Students spend their final semester participating in an at a company, where they complete a project while writing their Master’s thesis.

Objective

Through the Master’s degree programme in Supply Chain, students gain a holistic, specialist, and management understanding of logistics, where the focus is on application-oriented competencies. The aim of the programme is to provide graduates with practice-oriented, scientific expertise that qualifies them for specialist and management functions in the logistics field. Potential employment opportunities include working for national and international manufacturing and retail enterprises or for logistics-related service providers.

The M.Sc. in Supply Chain Management furthers students' professional and personal development, helping to drive their personal career development by providing them with an internationally recognized qualification in supply chain management. Building upon their initial university degree, students are able to define their own professional profiles based on these four core areas of the Master’s degree programme:

  • Business and Management
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Information Systems (particularly ERP and SCM)
  • Personal Competencies/Soft Skills

This provides students with a great degree of flexibility and enables them to master the broad range of tasks required in a range of different industry branches. They acquire scientifically based expert knowledge related to the overall design and operation of local and global value creation chains, based on all logistical factors, both within and outside of the company. A further central objective of this Master’s degree programme in Supply Chain Management is to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to carry out independent, practice-oriented tasks in the areas of team leadership and personnel management as well as in operative and strategic supply chain management, along with assuming participative and managerial functions in IT implementation projects.

Programme Structure

Courses are held on the campus of the SRH University of Logistics and Economics. The programme runs for four semesters, equivalent to a study period of two years. In all but the final semester, there are 14 weeks of lectures followed by a subsequent exam phase. The 4th semester is the final, practical semester in which students write their Master’s thesis while participating in a company internship. This practical phase helps students establish valuable contacts with interesting companies and potential employers – an important step on the way to beginning a successful career.
