The programme corresponds to the global competition requirements of efficiency, coordination, management control and development of business processes within and between companies in supply chains. It contains two different specialisations; the front in business and management control, and the front in logistics and supply chain management.
The two-year program is composed by the two fields of logistics/supply chain management and management accounting, a combination that is unique of its kind. One common theme in the program is to find and create efficiency within supply chains together with supplier networks, in order to fulfill those demands of value creation for the end customer that a competitive market imposes. Another important theme is, by developing and deployment of process-oriented information and control methods, to develop and streamline processes within parts of the own company and not the least between companies.
On the specialization Frontiers in logistics & supply chain management, you deepen your knowledge from the bachelor’s level. The first semester contains the courses Logistics management in supply chains (which e.g. treats future logistics challenges when coordinating with suppliers) and Supply chain information systems (which gives broad knowledge on IT support necessary to manage supply chains). After the first semester, you will study integration of supply chains and inter-organizational management accounting, research methodology and e-business management. The master program is concluded by a master thesis. It is possible to graduate after one year. The program is held in English and recruits students from all over the world.
After graduation you can work both nationally and internationally within a broad area. On today’s labour market, there is demand for business graduates that can integrate with other companies and work for the end customer with an offensive and business-oriented approach. The programme prepares both for a professional career related to the management and control of business processes in supply chains, as well as an academic career. Some job titles of alumni students are Purchaser, Supply Planner, Business Process Developer, Business Development Planner and After Sales Logistics Planner.
