MBA International Logistics and Trade

Trade and logistics are among the largest economic sectors worldwide. Business models and value chains are currently experiencing rapid change and digitisation is creating new opportunities for mobility. Networks are becoming more intensive, while markets and trade flows are shifting. In addition, modern logistics has to cope with new challenges due to the collapse in the global world order. Climate change is putting the logistics industry under considerable pressure to innovate. Anyone who wants to enter into management here needs years of industry experience and sound specialist knowledge.

The part-time MBA International Logistics and Trade prepares you in an optimally way for these challenges. It is international in its alignment, it sits at the interface between trade and logistics, it is in English and can be studied worldwide. Via the myWINGS online campus and the study app, for the first time, professionals from Europe, Asia, South Africa and Latin America, for example, can study together in a study group.

Internationally experienced professors and lecturers from Germany, Austria, Italy and India convey the teaching content via interactive video lectures and live tutorials. The attendance seminars also offer you the opportunity to expand your skills and your personal network. Bremenports provides the practical relevance. As the infrastructure manager of the global ports of Bremen and Bremerhaven, bremenports brings its first-hand expertise into teaching.
