Production Management and Logistics suits you if you...

  • are interested in industrial value creation as well as production and logistics,
  • already work on real problems from companies in the region during their studies and thus want to gain their first practical experience,
  • have the ability to think analytically and conceptually,
  • have an interest in IT topics,
  • want to quickly take on responsibility with their employer and are keen to continuously improve themselves and their business environment.

Future prospects

  • Best career opportunities: Increasing importance of the topic for securing supply chains and gaining strategic competitive advantages.
  • Broad range of applications: e.g. in purchasing, scheduling, materials management, work preparation, production planning and control, logistics, etc..
  • Interdisciplinary work: Production management and logistics in particular are cross-sectional operational functions. They interface with all operational functional areas and thus offer the best opportunities for professional development.
  • Innovative approaches: The central topic for many companies is Industry 4.0 and the associated digitalisation. Artificial intelligence is also playing an increasingly important role in industrial companies.
  • Differentiation: This specialisation is only offered at a few universities and the demand in companies is high.
