Logistics & Process Management

Optional focus in Business Administration or Industrial Engineering

The focus for all business activities surrounding the flow of goods


Business Administration students specializing in Logistics & Process Management learn how to increase the efficiency of supply chains and material flows in companies. The ability to understand and optimize cross-departmental processes is crucial for ensuring the availability of products and the supply of materials for production.

Business Administration students also gain knowledge in applying innovative methods to minimize waste, especially in transportation, storage, and picking, leading to more efficient logistical processes and increased corporate efficiency.

Industrial Engineering students with a focus on Logistics gain in-depth insights into the design and optimization of internal material flows and global supply chains. They learn how to minimize waste through technical methods and make logistical processes more efficient.

Their expertise in automating recurring processes plays a crucial role in ensuring the availability of products and the supply of materials for their own production. Understanding the integration of material and information flows makes them key figures in creating efficient trading, production, and market provisioning processes.

Information about the focus

Studying Logistics & Process Management – What does that mean?

Logistics refers to the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the flow of goods from the origin to the point of consumption to meet the requirements of customers or companies. It includes all activities related to picking, transport, storage, handling, and management of goods and plays a crucial role in optimizing business processes and increasing efficiency and effectiveness.

During their studies, students delve deeper into the subject of Business Process Management from the fourth semester, focusing on the analysis, optimization, and management of business processes.

In the fifth semester, knowledge is expanded through the modeling and simulation of logistical systems. Here, students learn to virtually map and analyze complex logistical processes to identify optimization potentials.

The sixth semester offers different focuses depending on the field of study. While business administration students engage with selected aspects of logistics, industrial engineering students focus on material flow technology. These specializations allow students to deepen their knowledge in the respective areas.

In the final seventh semester, international trade and global logistics are at the forefront. Students deal with global market conditions and learn to efficiently design and manage international logistics processes.

Overview of focus modules:

4th Sem.: Business Process Management

5th Sem.: Modeling & Simulation of Logistical Systems
