According to our estimates, more than 2.5 million people in Germany currently work in supply chain management. However, both in the logistic service industry and in the field of in-house logistics, academics were underrepresented in the past. Although there has been a noticeable increase in education and training in German institutions of higher education, there will be a significant accumulated demand for university-trained supply chain managers for many years to come.
The Master’s degree program Supply Chain Management/Logistics is designed to take three semesters and basic knowledge in logistics and IT are required. Catching up on lacking knowledge is possible.
Degree program objective
The goal is to prepare students for assuming management tasks in logistics. Logistics is characterized by the integration of technical and business aspects. New logistic management concepts can only be established through new technical support and only technical solutions enable new logistic approaches. This degree program therefore focuses on conveying this interface know-how from both the business and the technical point of view and combines it to an overall concept. Due to this integrated concept graduates of the Master’s degree program are enabled to assume management tasks in logistics (so-called senior level).

„What I liked the most about the Master program in Logistics was the good combination of theory and practice. The knowledge taught in the first and second semester is at the same time applied in projects with different companies. The projects create an accessible as well as realistic learning environment and support teamwork and networking.
I decided to go to Hof University of Applied Sciences because it is a small university town. In Hof, it is possible to experience a close connection between culture, studies, and friendship. The town has everything you need and has a good connection by train to other cities.
To study in German was, of course, a difficult challenge but at the same time a good learning experience. The professors are always ready to help and answer all the questions you might have. The lectures are interactive and inclusive. The students are helpful, and they support each other all the time.
My previous knowledge of German was sufficient. With time, I learned the relevant technical terms. I was able to improve my pronunciation through the practice during the lectures and presentations.
Because of the numerous students from all over the world, the student life is intercultural and funny. Whether you are German or a foreigner, both professors and university employees always help. I had a very good experience and I am grateful for the support."
