Content of the programme
After one year of basic logistics studies, you can specialise in either Logistics Management (Economics) (LM) or Logistics Engineering (LE). With LM you choose for the managerial side of logistics. You are in charge of generating important information to control and improve your business performance.
Meeting customer delivery agreements and setting up collaborations with suppliers belongs to your tasks. Besides being taught in logistics, you’ll deal with business economics, statistics and management skills which prepare you for your future employment. Thus within the study programme LM you’ll learn how to be fully able to expedite the development of new business opportunities.
At Fontys you can choose between two logistical study programmes. The foundation of Logistics Engineering and Logistics Management (Economics) is the same: managing and improving the logistical flow of goods. By choosing one of the two study programmes you specialise in an aspect of logistics.
Logistics Management (Economics) (LM)
In Logistics Management (Economics) you specialise to become a manager. You lead a team or department and are responsible for the planning and execution of logistical processes.
Students about this programme
From my OWN experience
Logistics is something that has been around me right from an early age. My grandfather has been a truck driver all his life, my mother, and my uncle both work in the transport sector and my father mainly manufactures constructions for rolling transport. So I have always had an interest in the field, and once I had finished my pre-university education (which focussed on nature, technology, and mathematics for exact sciences), I looked into this course. There is a shortage of logistics experts in the current market, which means that it shouldn't be too difficult to find a job after graduation.
I like the way lessons are given here very much as I prefer classrooms to large lecture halls. The smaller scale of things also helps you to build better relationships with your fellow students and with lecturers. The course is not difficult if you are able to think at all logically. I would recommend attending every lesson and paying good attention.
In the future, I hope to work in a managerial position for a medium-sized to large transport or manufacturing business.
