The Rhine-Main region is not only a central hub and transshipment hub for goods and people within Europe, but also an important production location. In this context, it is logistics that is particularly important, which is growing disproportionately in the Rhine-Main area and covers all goods and transport processes before, during and after the production process, trade and even after product use. This requires well-qualified logistics experts who are able to cope with the constantly growing complexity and increasing customer requirements. As part of the Bachelor's degree programme in Logistics Management, students learn to understand and manage the process of planning, designing and controlling the flow of materials and information between suppliers and customers. The degree programme trains logistics specialists with broad-based and cross-industry competences. You can find more in-depth information about the degree programme on the website of the Department of Business.
The logistics market offers good career prospects regionally, nationally and internationally.
