The world is in a constant state of change. Political change, the lifting of trade barriers and advances in technology present both global opportunities and threats. Sourcing products from the world’s best suppliers and the capability to reach new markets or deliver anywhere on the globe creates major logistical challenges. Logistics is the management of this end-to-end supply chain that provides the means to achieve strategic goals.

Course Overview

The MSc in Logistics is designed around three themes: logistics, business management and research. The programme is underpinned by the study of logistics strategies and operations. Future developments in logistics is the focus of sustainable logistics. The management of complex scenarios is the rationale for modelling logistics.

To deal with suppliers it is necessary to have an understanding of financial management and the law relating to contracts. To make logistics changes happen requires skills in managing human and organisational resources.

Connecting these two themes is an overall emphasis on undertaking research: learning and using qualitative and quantitative research techniques which culminate in an individual research project.

Efficient, safe and sustainable logistics is critical to all sectors and this allows students to develop innovative and varied research projects.

Modules

Key Features

Logistics management offers a career that will continually develop an individual’s potential and reward ambition in a challenging global environment. And since the demand for logistics professionals outstrips the supply, there are excellent opportunities for rapid career progression for those with the drive to succeed. Careers in logistics management offer early responsibility, exciting challenges with good remuneration and opportunities to travel.

At almost every point, supply chain operations will have an impact on the environment. Companies must address questions such as: ‘is inventory available for planned production runs?’, or ‘is fuel consumption of the vehicle fleet being optimised?’, ‘is the distribution centre energy efficient?’, or ‘can packaging materials be reused or recycled?’ The challenge is how to combine operational development with a sustainable approach to the environment.

Assessment

Part I of the programme is 90% written coursework including spreadsheet work with one examination in one module.

The dissertation is assessed by the research proposal, the dissertation and a viva voce.

Career Opportunities

In recent years, as supply chains have moved from local, to international, to global in nature, the role of logistics has been strongly highlighted, giving it an increasingly high profile. In addition, lean and agile thinking have forced organisations to focus more strongly on logistical aspects of their operations, particularly as they seek to improve management of their supply chains and networks.

Consequently there is a demand for well qualified individuals to take on management roles, particularly as logistics and supply chain management are now recognised as a key part of an organisation’s operational strategy. The emergence of the recognised discipline of crisis and humanitarian logistics has also increased demand for managers with high level skills in logistics.

Supply Chain Engineering and Management: What is it all about?

The worldwide exchange of goods, the mobility of humans and the constant flow of information and ideas requires expertise about transport chains and how exchange processes work, what design options are available and the ability to develop new methods to meet future challenges. Organizations and management of modern logistic networks demand professional staff. The necessary knowledge reaches far beyond mere logistics or management knowledge. It requires personalities that do not only operate, but have a desire to be responsible and engage in shaping, in engineering the future.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) plays a key, strategic role in the performance of companies with above average success. SCM adds value for the company and its clients. It prevails in SCM that to achieve constant gain in competitive advantage the supply chain must whenever possible be organized from strategy, to implementation, all the way to operationalisation. Because of that it needs well trained leaders, who are able to position the topic supply chain as a strategic function. This master program encompasses these facets in different ways and appropriately roots them into various modules of the curriculum.

It is to be expected that the demand for leaders educated in this manner will grow in the future. The Master’s program M.Sc. Supply Chain Engineering & Manage¬ment obtains this quality by using a holistic approach to prepare its students for these complex challenges which pertain to industry and logistics research with interdisciplinary and practical knowledge.

Graduate program at Jacobs University: “Think out of the box”

The need to manage supply chains, production facilities and transport more efficiently has intensified the demand for educated professionals with both management and engineering skills. The graduate program in Supply Chain Engineering and Management (MSc) at Jacobs University aims to meet this demand by educating and training the leaders of tomorrow.

The program’s structure emphasizes equally techniques and technologies, economies and management, and engineering technologies as well as languages and soft skills. It has been designed and implemented in close cooperation with industry and international partner universities. Thus, students will benefit from broad exposure to »real world« challenges and academic excellence.
The program’s basic idea is to bridge the gap between classical management and engineers within one company: Often, they do not really understand each other due to different wordings, perspectives and aims. We try to create a certain understanding and knowledge, we try to open horizons, to make our students aware of the other group’s perspective - making them "think out of the box".

Apart from its interdisciplinary and interactive approaches in its programs, one of the foundations of Jacobs University is its internationality. The study program Supply Chain Engineering and Management reflects this as well: more than 25 students from 14 different countries are taught in English. Also, faculty and lecturers come from different cultural backgrounds, e.g. Finland, Germany, Britain, USA, Ireland, or Norway.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Students with a MSc in Supply Chain Engineering and Management will find a wide range of attractive career options, in the dynamic and interesting field of logistics and beyond. So far, the employment rate of the program's predecessor is close to 100% within the first 12 months after graduation. Frequently, students get job offers already during their last year at Jacobs University. About half of the graduates work in Germany.

Among others, so far graduates entered industries such as logistics departments of car manufacturers, the food industry, or the aerospace industry. They work for international operating railway transportation companies or business consultancies. In the very same way, graduates of SCEM are qualified to opt for a career in academia, in governmental institutions, international organizations, business associations, the media and non-profit organizations.

Due to their experience working and living with students from about 100 countries on Jacobs University’s international campus, graduates are well-prepared to take on responsibility in multicultural work environments. They have a specific advantage competing for jobs that require not only basic skills and qualifications in the field of logistics, but also inter-cultural skills, as well as practical problem-solving skills and methods meant to deal with challenges in a globalized world. Such jobs are increasingly offered in all institutions mentioned above, but specifically in international organizations, multinational corporations and governmental institutions.
