TheLogistics Management programme combines theoretical and practical aspects within logistics, purchasing, production, storage and distribution in an international perspective.

For the first 3 semesters of studying for logistics economics, you are at the business academy.

In your last semester, you will do an internship. A course that equips you to use the theories from your education in practice. As the last part of the education, you must prepare the final exam project.


  • The company and the market

    At the start of the course, you will be introduced to transport and logistics, so that you learn more specifically which areas of expertise you will encounter as a logistics economist.

    You learn about the logistical work areas; including purchasing, production and distribution management, and you will be introduced to the different modes of transport.

    You gain insight into organizational structure, management and decision-making processes. You will be introduced to project work and you will gain knowledge about how to communicate professionally and business-wise in both Danish and English.

    You will also learn about the company's position in the market – both from a local, national and international perspective, and not least you will learn about what this means for the company.

    You learn to analyze the opportunities and disadvantages of the company's position in the market, and you learn to utilize the knowledge you gain from the analysis.

  • Purchasing and production

    Here you will be introduced to what purchasing is in a company, and not least about the importance of good and less good purchasing for the company.

    How you conduct a procurement negotiation in Danish and English is also something that you will want to become familiar with.

    You learn how to do quality control; including using statistical techniques so that you make the right number of samples.

    During this core area, you will also be introduced to storage and logistics as well as the production processes in companies; right from the raw materials arriving in the warehouse until the finished products are ready for dispatch at the other end of the value chain. 

    For example, you will gain knowledge about analysis methods in relation to companies' material flow, and you will learn how to prepare forecasts and optimize production and inventory management.

  • Distribution and Supply Chain Management

    Distribution and Supply Chain Management gives you an insight into how the finished product comes from suppliers all over the world to the company's warehouse and on to customers in both Denmark and abroad. You gain skills to manage product, information and money flows as well as assess legal issues in transport, import, and export.

    This involves analyzing and drawing up solutions for the challenges that may arise along the way in global supply chains, and the reservations that must be taken - also concerning if a product must be returned to the company from the customer. You learn to complete projects and implement the solutions using project management tools.

    You gain knowledge about different forms of transport and planning, and you also learn to handle distribution systems.
