MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management

A sector with huge prospects

If the Logistics sector were a company a share, analysts would describe it as a sure-fire path to the greatest gains in the future. Greece is a gateway to Europe. Despite the crisis, infrastructure is developing. Ports, airports and railways are being modernised, major road networks are being completed and, in conjunction with the construction of the freight centre in Thriassio Pedio freight complex, they are expected to strongly boost growth by attracting key international players active in the field of freight flows. The sector’s 11% contribution to the country’s GDP and the 54,000 job positions are about to increase. The MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management programme is aimed at executives who are already working in the industry and wish to develop professionally, or to executives from other fields who wish to make a fresh start towards a career in a highly promising industry.

MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management

The course covers a wide range of modules, from the management of supply chains and international supplies to the economics of maritime transport and the analysis of supply chain data, while it also educates students regarding the use of qualitative and quantitative research and analysis methods. Theoretical training and professional practice are combined, complementing each other, so that postgraduate students will be able to listen to the pulse of the market, evaluate it and utilise it correctly.

The relevant degrees are awarded by our partner University of West London and are exactly the same as those awarded to postgraduate students in the UK.
