International Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Course Description

Master of Science with a major in Business Administration

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.

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.

[[It´s project oriented]]

Linda Staflund, student in International Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

"I chose Jönköping University because it’s international. It feels like being abroad while still at home.

My classmates are from all over the world, and people are so open and fun to be around. It’s a fantastic study environment and I’ve found lots of new friends.

I did my bachelor degree at JIBS as well, and I haven’t regretted that I decided to stay for master’s! Jönköping International Business School gives so many opportunities for exchange studies, and I think the fact that I’ve spent several semesters abroad will be an advantage for me in the future. It shows that I’m adaptable, open and not afraid of challenges and of trying new things. I went to both Montreal and Portsmouth during my bachelor studies and next semester I’m going to Lyon in France.

Studying on this level is different from what I’m used to, and I really like it. The classes are smaller and we work very project oriented with lots of case studies. In some courses the literature only consists of scholarly articles, which means it’s really up to date with research.

I think my experiences from Jönköping will be great for me in my future career!"

[[International at heart]]

Matthew Hailey student at Jönköping University international buisiness school.

"Studying at JIBS has given me the opportunity to make strong friendships with students from all over the world, including Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, Greece and Brazil to name just a few.

This has given me the ability to not only learn about Swedish culture, but of many around the world, providing a truly International perspective, broadening my horizons and enriching my learning of others.

Sweden is a very safe and welcoming country. From an economical, social and cultural point of view Sweden seems to have got the balance just right and this is reflected in its society and high standard of living.

The student environment at JIBS provides students with the ability to gain vast experience and knowledge in an excellent setting. The campus buildings are bright, modern and help provide a comfortable environment in which to study. There are many open areas in which to study and also computer labs and group rooms available to students in order to study or work on assignments.

There are also several eateries and cafes on campus for times when you need to energise and take a break from your studies, at reasonable student prices.

Once I’ve completed my studies at JIBS I believe the theory and practical knowledge taught on the programme will enhance my job prospects greatly. I hope to use my new skills and experience to start a career in the air transportation and logistics industry."
