What does this course contain?

Just over a third of your Business Management degree focuses on your specialisation.

You start with the basics of international business – accounting, cross-cultural communication, economics, law, management, marketing, logistics and trade.

The logistics lab gives a first, practical taste of your specialisation. Map out a viable supply chain from source to customer, mindful of its ecological footprint. Draw on expert insight, visit a company, and troubleshoot issues as a team.

Build on this as you progress. Learn to forecast demand, and respond to geopolitics. Delve into supply chain management and its push for sustainability, international transport, customs, import and export management. Fine-tune your international business skills too.

Explore maritime transport, port logistics, customs and warehousing’s digital revolution in the final year. Then round off your degree with an international internship in a logistics firm – ideal preparation for this fast-paced, dynamic industry.

After graduation

Work or study

This new specialisation is modelled on our existing Dutch-language version. Its graduates have started careers in logistics companies, transport firms, shipping companies, as well as the service and manufacturing sectors. 

Our 50+ years of teaching in this sector gives us the insight to develop a sought-after graduate profile. We have built our expertise through strong collaboration with industry contacts, and in doing so, keep our curriculum responsive to developments from the field.

See yourself as a future forwarder, shipping agent, export manager, purchase manager, logistics operations manager, supply chain planner and warehouse supervisor? The global nature of the supply chain brings with it job opportunities at each step of the way. 

Or perhaps you want to continue with your studies? Then a master’s degree in maritime and logistics management or supply chain management are potential options.
