Logistics and transport management is increasingly recognized as pivotal to sound decision making and organizational success in meeting business objectives. Complex challenges arise from the globalization of production and consumption; innovative, modern solutions are needed to ensure and maintain profitability and competitiveness while responding to evolving customer demands and technological developments. Furthermore, increasing environmental concerns introduce a whole new dynamic, both socially and practically, to the logistics and transport arena. This programme prepares you for a career in the logistics and transport sector, which employs six million people in the EU alone, has an added value of approximately €15 billion, influences virtually all industrial and public-sector activities, and affects every citizen’s daily life.
