After graduation, you can work both nationally and internationally within a broad area. In today’s labor market, there is a demand for business graduates that can integrate with other companies and work for the end customer with an offensive and business-oriented approach. The program prepares both for a professional career related to the management and control of business processes in supply chains, as well as an academic career. Some job titles of alumni students are Purchaser, Supply Planner, Business Process Developer, Business Development Planner, and After Sales Logistics Planner.
The two-year program is composed of the two fields of logistics/supply chain management and management accounting, a combination that is unique of its kind. One common theme in the program is to find and create efficiency within supply chains together with supplier networks, in order to fulfill those demands of value creation for the end customer that a competitive market imposes. Another important theme is, by developing and deployment of process-oriented information and control methods, to develop and streamline processes within parts of the own company and not the least between companies.
On the specialization Frontiers in logistics & supply chain management, you deepen your knowledge from the bachelor’s level. The first semester contains the courses Logistics management in supply chains (which e.g. treats future logistics challenges when coordinating with suppliers) and Supply chain information systems (which gives broad knowledge on IT support necessary to manage supply chains). After the first semester, you will study the integration of supply chains and inter-organizational management accounting, research methodology, and e-business management. The master's program is concluded with a master's thesis. It is possible to graduate after one year. The program is held in English and recruits students from all over the world.
