Learn about every aspect of core logistics disciplines: Transport logistics, supply chain management and risk management. The course at the Hamburg School of Business Administration, held primarily in English, will enable you to fulfil an important role in port and transport logistics. The business studies course with a practical focus takes six semesters and covers 180 ECTS points. The course admits a maximum of 30 students.
Handling and transporting containers and coordinating the flow of goods are the main aspects of HHLA’s business. This involves certain risks and legal challenges, which you will get to know both through your studies as well as in your practical work. Warehousing is also important. In the first year you will build up a foundation of business knowledge. The share of logistics-specific modules will increase over the duration of the course. The course also includes a broad range of seminars, foreign language options and a period of practical work abroad.
The practical aspect of the training will mainly be performed at the container terminals and in the fields of intermodal traffic and logistics. Integrated into project teams, you will gain detailed knowledge of various processes at the terminals. As the temporary lead on projects, you will be able to test your newly gained knowledge and prove what you have learned.
