Are you interested in digital logistics, eProcurement and smart purchasing platforms? Are you interested in the design and improvement of business processes or the conception of innovative distribution strategies such as Supply Chain Management 4.0? You would like to know how to use Internet of Things and Virtual/Augmented Reality in your company? Are you fascinated by logistic facilities and systems used to transport and handle goods?
We will show you how you, as a Logistics and Supply Chain Manager, can creatively design innovative, agile processes with domestic and foreign suppliers, your colleagues in the company and customers. How you will continue to support their implementation and manage their operations. We provide you with the necessary knowledge of real and digital logistics systems and processes. You will also learn about aspects of process design and optimization and the installation of logistics IT systems. You will learn how to assess the profitability of your planning and the ongoing operation of your systems. A further important component of their studies will be how they can motivate and promote personnel as managers. You will also learn selected soft skills and competencies at your own discretion, which are equally important components of your studies.
"At the OTH in Weiden you are not only a matriculation number, but a personality. As a student, I never had the feeling of being helpless in the face of my studies and their milestones. This applied not least to the personal support and close contact with the professors. It was precisely this kind of support that helped me to develop my skills, expand them and grow with my studies. You get the support you need and are encouraged to take other paths to make your studies more varied. In the lectures, not only theoretical models are taken up, but also the relation to practice is created and highlighted. During the specialisation you will have the opportunity to apply and consolidate your acquired knowledge in projects with local companies. The alternatives offered beyond that allow to educate oneself in further different fields. This gives me the chance to broaden my professional horizons later on and creates a new way of thinking that is in demand on the job market.
