Logistics is big business. Its consumption of land, labor, capital, and information—coupled with its impact on the world’s standard of living—have enormous implications. During the last quarter of the twentieth century, logistics increased in importance from a function that was perceived as barely necessary to: (1) an activity where significant cost savings could be generated; (2) an activity that had enormous potential to impact customer satisfaction and hence increase sales; and (3) a marketing weapon that could be effectively utilized to gain a sustainable competitive advantage.

Our master programme covers many facets of logistics and supply chain management to create significant competitive advantages. The main topics and and key issues are introduced by RBS staff, followed by guest lectures of Cap Gemini. The guest lecturers will present case studies from their own practice. Emphasis is given to Logistics and supply chain management, basic to organisations in the production and delivery of products and services. The integrated approach to management activities like product sourcing, process design and selection, management of technology and product flow and scheduling across functional business processes are drivers for a significant competitive learning advantage.

Master in Logistics Management graduates have everything it takes to become important links in the chain of processes that is called Logistics. This Master programme is built on three pillars: the educational programme, the research programme and the personal development programme. The educational programme provides a profound knowledge of the necessary theories and frameworks and apply theory to practice. The research programme prepares the student for academic research. In the personal development programme students reflect on themselves and the programme, in order to gain an understanding of their personal growth in the study programme.
