Logistics is the management of processes of planning, structuring, and controlling the flow of goods and information in companies, as well as between suppliers and customers throughout the supply chain. Logistics is one of the most important fields of career opportunities worldwide and the third biggest sector of industry in Germany. It is a complex task that requires planning, organisation, practicality, and technical skills.
Therefore the study programme at FHWS combines subjects in the field of IT, business administration, and technical aspects. Graduates work in a variety of industries and sectors, including retail trade, manufacturing or transportation.
The Bachelor‘s degree programmes in English are structured in a similar way to the existing degree programme in German (twin programmes) which enables students to switch between courses and languages. It is possible to obtain a TWIN-certificate which proves that students completed their studies in both languages and are perfectly qualified for successful careers in the German and international labour market.
