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.

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.

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 Universityof Applied Sciences. 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.
