Master in International Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Jönköping University

Do you want to add knowledge about management and control of international and global supply chain and logistics to your bachelor degree? In that case, International Logistics and Supply Chain Management is the programme for you.

This programme is unique in that it offers a cross-disciplinary education, combining the core topics of logistics and supply chain management with informatics, and economic geography.

You gain deep theoretical knowledge and understanding of the supply chain network and its development, as well as of the tools needed to analyse, develop and change such supply chains. The pro­gramme prepares students for internatio­nal careers.

There is a strong connection between theory and practice and you will enjoy continuous and constructive exposure to practice, exchange with practitioners, and insights from the faculty’s internatio­nally recognised research throughout the various modules.

Practitioners are invited to make presentations as well as to engage in discussions. Students are introduced to live cases and visits to companies.

All courses are given in English. The programme is open to students from around the world, and courses have a diverse international participation of students. This international atmosphere contributes to a broad perspective of the issues discussed in class.

Study abroad

Students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our many partner universities. The alternative to international exchange is to study elective courses at Jönköping International Business School. Both alternatives allows you to create your own individualised profile.


Part of the elective semester can be devoted to an internship.

After graduation

The strong focus and cross-disciplinary nature of the programme prepare you for a career in the areas of supply chain management and logistics and equip you with the skills for a career such as procu­rement officer, logistics manager, supply chain manager, product manager, marke­ting manager/director.

The programme also prepares students for doctoral research education.
