Logistics Management course overview

With the Logistics Management degree at NHL Stenden, you become a supply chain management professional with an eye for the circular economy. Through our educational concept, Design-Based Education (DBE), you work in small teams of students, teachers, researchers and industry professionals. You tackle current, real-life issues developing and adapting your visions and ideas to form a solid solution. And you gain yet more practical experience during your internship in your final year.  


The programme for Logistics Management 

In the first two years of the programme you develop a broad understanding of the industry which you then get to apply during your internship in your third year. You also choose your specialisation in your third year before going on to your final year. You complete your degree with a graduation project within a company of your choice.  

As this degree is a management course, you’ll also develop the skills needed to be a manager. These skills are integrated into the programme and developed through the practical assignments you do as well as during your internship. You also work with your study coach throughout your degree so that you get to develop your talents and work on the extra skills you need.

Minors are electives in which you focus on a specific subject or expand your knowledge by taking an additional subject. This allows you to truly take charge of your education by ‘customising’ your course.
