Our bachelor's program is modular, which means that you study using subject areas that are divided into so-called "modules".

These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.

Your professional future in logistics

The German logistics industry is booming. With sales of 235 billion euros and around 2.9 million employees, it is the third largest economic sector in Germany. Every day, over two million vehicles - trucks, trains or ships - are on the road for transports and deliveries. But logistical services today go far beyond traditional transport, handling and storage. Complex tasks in the context of industrial production or controlling global logistics networks are just a few examples.
