Shaping skills in conceptualisation, assessment of a company's competitive capabilities, application of methods and tools to streamline, rationalise, restructure and optimise economic processes in a company with a particular focus on logistics processes - this is the main objective of the classes offered by the Faculty of Economics of the University of Gdańsk within the new English-language specialisation Logistics and Mobility.
As of the 2022/2023 academic year, the University of Gdańsk enriches its offer with new majors in English. One of them is the Logistics and Mobility master's degree programme, run by the UG Faculty of Economics at the Faculty of Economics.
If you need qualifications indispensable for your work as a logistics manager, want to keep abreast of current trends and directions in mobility and the transport sector, would like to acquire practical skills in operating IT tools used in logistics, such as SAP and ARIS - this is an offer for you.
- 'We invite you to study at the Faculty of Economics, which has extensive experience in conducting studies in English. Since 2008, we have offered a specialisation in International Business for the first and second degrees, where students have the opportunity to work together in an intercultural environment. We hope that the new specialisation will complement this multiculturalism,' - says dr hab. Monika Bąk, prof. UG, Dean of the Faculty of Economics. - 'We are also counting on candidates whose mother tongue is Polish, but working in logistics companies or dealing with logistics in corporations, they naturally speak English. These studies can perfectly strengthen their competencies. All the more so as there is a strong emphasis on the practical dimension of the courses and direct contact with representatives of business practice who are involved in the implementation of selected subjects.'
The study programme combines issues related to the modelling of logistics processes, supply chain management, sustainable urban mobility, managerial decision-making in logistics, the importance of forwarding and transport in logistics and the use of IT tools in logistics and mobility. The study programme is also complemented by subjects allowing students to broaden their knowledge in the field of mobility in its broadest sense, whose development is determined by trends in the market of transport, forwarding and logistics services.
The Logistics and Mobility specialisation enables students, among other things, to acquire the qualifications needed in the work of a logistics manager, to gain knowledge of current trends and directions in mobility and the transport sector, and to observe real logistical processes, thanks to study visits to enterprises.
Who can apply for this course? Graduates of all higher education degrees are eligible to apply.
Recruitment started on June 1 and is conducted online in the IRK (Internet Recruitment of Candidates) system. Registration for the Logistics and Mobility course closes on July 15, a list of candidates will appear on July 22, and a list of those accepted to study will be announced on July 28.
