What you will learn
A growing variety of variants, increasing quantities, but also new requirements due to automation and digitalisation require efficient logistics solutions. The consistent application of the lean management philosophy leads to a lean value chain with smooth information and material flows that increase the profitability of a company. The lean management philosophy is a comprehensive approach that is not limited to production processes alone, but includes all areas of a company, especially logistics, as an essential factor for the success of a company.
In your studies, you will therefore learn the methodical basics and analytical tools for optimising logistical processes on the basis of the lean management philosophy. With the help of methods for quantitative process analysis and optimisation, you will acquire skills to record, analyse and evaluate logistics processes and thus develop optimised material flow and information flow processes. Through the use of case studies, practical reports and business games, you will learn to apply the theoretical knowledge in a practice-oriented manner. In addition, you will learn about other topics that are crucial for your career and your future profession, such as the planning, simulation and digitalisation of logistics systems, material flow techniques and business management topics such as human resources management and investment/financing, etc.
Your career prospects
Our innovative approach that pays off
Logistics experts with profound knowledge of lean management are sought after in almost every industry, trade and service sector.
As a lean logistician, you initiate change processes and introduce new concepts in corporate logistics. You will accompany optimisation projects from the planning phase to realisation and evaluation of success, from the creation of concepts and the independent implementation of process surveys to the moderation of workshops, the definition of "best practice solutions" and the development of standards.
We train you to become a lean expert who actively shapes the continuous change in logistics.
Flexibility at its best - Our bridge semester
In addition to the high-quality transfer of knowledge in teaching according to the CORE principle and thus in addition to the training of technical, social and methodical competence application, the personal development of the students is also important to our university. Therefore, we have now introduced the so-called bridging semester in order to offer a maximum of flexibility for exactly this personal development. How does this work and what are the requirements? Quite simply.
You have reached 150 CP in your Bachelor's degree program? Perfect. We now offer you two options:
- You continue your studies and graduate as soon as possible
- You take a semester break and use this time to find a job, do internships, get a taste of companies, learn languages, acquire cultural competencies or whatever enhances your skills. You do not have to pay any monthly fees for this semester. Of course, your studies will continue for one more semester.
You can use this bridging semester as a bridging semester at the earliest after reaching 150 CPs and at the earliest after finishing the 5th semester in terms of personal and professional development and remain enrolled. A fee is charged for this semester, but the last semester is then free of charge. The bridging semester is limited to one semester. You can indicate yourself if you have reached the required CP before the bridging semester.
The possibility to apply for a semester off remains. The bridging semester is a parallel existing attractive alternative.
