In this 4-year programme, you will learn about production, the flow of goods, planning and scheduling, and storage and transport. This skillset is highly valuable to organisations, as is shown by your internship opportunities alone. Companies such as Volkswagen Emden, IKEA and international logistics companies are happy to take on International Logistics Management students from NHL Stenden.
As a graduate of this course, you will have excellent career prospects, allowing you to work for large international corporates, but also governments and non-profits.
A logistics manager makes sure that key business processes, such as storage, transport, or planning run smoothly. On the job, you will enjoy a high level of responsibility, and no working day will ever be the same. Careers that are open to you after graduation include Logistics Manager, Planner/Scheduler, or Purchase Manager.
The curriculum is based on Design Based Education principles. This means you get to pursue your field of interest within international logistics while working on real-life cases. It also means you get to work in small study groups, ensuring you will receive personal attention and coaching.
