Molde University College – Specialized University in Logistics is one of the best places to study Logistics and Operation Management in Europe. The MSc programme in Logistics is open for Norwegian students and international students with individual funding.
Logistics deals with the organization of the flow of products, services and information from raw materials to the end-user, and is therefore built on a broad spectrum of academic disciplines, such as economics, business administration, industrial organization, management, information technology/ computer science, besides more quantitative techniques and models based on mathematics, statistics, engineering, and operations research.
