Navigating International Supply Chains: Module Applied Logistics Research

  • In the area of conflict between the increasing dynamics and complexity of international logistics networks on the one hand and increasing customer requirements in terms of variant diversity and delivery times on the other, logistics managers are faced with the challenge of regularly generating new approaches to solving a large number of problems in a short time.

  • The classical approaches from theory often reach their limits, which leads to a gap between theory and practice, which future managers have to close quickly.

  • On the basis of real case studies, participants of the course will be able to work on complex problems in a short time and develop practical approaches to solutions.

  • The course participants work in groups on three consecutive case studies and compete against each other with their solutions. In addition, a written elaboration will be prepared and must be submitted by the end of the semester (end of September 2020).

  • The case studies deal with topics of international logistics management and the elaboration requires competences in different fields of logistics.

  • Professional requirement: Master's degree, previous knowledge in the field of logistics required

  • Participant limitation: min. 6 to max. 15 participants

  • Language: German / English optional by arrangement

The first date of the event will be announced here.

Applied Logistics Research

A decisive characteristic of logistics is the holistic and process-integrated view as well as the orientation towards the customer. Different approaches and theories combined in their entirety provide new opportunities for logistics to react to increasing requirements and to generate innovation. In the course Applied Logistics Research, students pursue a research project under scientific guidance, beginning with the conception of content, survey methodology and evaluation. The concepts are first taught theoretically and then deepened in their practical application. The thematic focus of the current semester is on the topic of group-based case study processing. The module consists of an integrated course with a strong project character.

For successful completion of the course 6 ECTS points are awarded.
