Perspectives in Logistics
Analysis of the labour market has shown that there is high demand for qualified supply chain managers in industrial, retail, consulting, and software enterprises, as well as by logistics service providers.
Competition is no longer limited to products or companies – today, the competition also includes entire supply chains and value networks. The key to remaining competitive, whether an individual company or an entire value creation system, is in the integration of the individual elements. This is where supply chain management plays a crucial role. Supply chain managers manage this integration by designing holistic, integral processes and embedding these in information systems. Beyond the strictly technical aspects, it is important that the human component also be taken into consideration and that an interpersonal approach also be incorporated into value systems. This concept is reflected in our curriculum.
Our distance learning degree programme builds on students’ existing knowledge and skills, while they continue to remain active professionally. The highly relevant and timely course content is designed allow students to enhance their professional and personal development and to strengthen their professional qualifications. The distance learning programme places particular emphasis on four main specializations:
- Business and Management
- Supply Chain Management (Global Logistics)
- Information Systems (especially ERP and SCM)
- Personal Competencies/Soft Skills
Students are then able to tailor their own individual profiles so that they include the professional qualifications companies and various industries require for a wide range of positions. The distance learning course allows students to gain scientifically based expertise that will equip them to take on the overall design and management of local and global supply chains – all while they continue their employment. As ongoing globalization creates a growing need for companies to increase their efficiency, supply chain management is more relevant than ever. Companies are always on the lookout for highly qualified professionals, able to identify and seize opportunities in value and supply chains, while minimizing the risks.
