Managers of global commodity flows

Internationality – responsibility – project management

In recent years, the development of logistics has been driven by constant growth, major dynamic changes and a dramatic rise in complexity. The demands of global markets are leading to new forms of cooperation between enterprises, for example through the emergence of cross-company logistics networks. As a result, logisticians need to acquire new and additional skills and qualifications.
Graduates will be able to use scientific methods to analyse highly complex systems and processes, carry out optimisations, and develop and apply new solutions. The students are equipped with logistics knowledge and methodology, specialised expertise, and the skills required for development and problem-solving, while engaging with concrete issues from practice. This prepares them to take on qualified and, in some cases, specialised professional activities in upper management. Graduates are qualified to assume responsibility for managerial tasks in such areas as management, development, application and sales. They are equipped to take on conceptual activities at a scientifically abstract level in logistics and are thus qualified to take on management tasks.
The Association of Industrial Engineers for Transportation (Verein der Wirtschaftsingenieur:innen für Transportwesen – VdWT) at the university, the largest alumni association, with over 800 members in logistics, is available to help you with questions about internships, careers and networking.
