MSC IN ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS ADMIN.


LOGISTICS AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT*
PLANNING AND CONTROLLING A COMPANYS ACTIVITIES

The reason I chose to study logistics was the strong link between
quantitative sciences and soft management ideas. I had no doubt
that the importance of the science of logistics would grow in importance
in future. I now work as a manager for the Forecasting Department in the
Market & Operations Development area in the LEGO Group. I have the
demand focus in our global Sales & Operations (S&OP), and develop
model-based forecasting projects. I also lead a small team of analysts
and manage the development of the SAP SCM (APO DP) system.

Logistics is concerned with the planning and control of a firms activities to


ensure that the right product is delivered in the right quantity, to the right
customer, at the right time. It is not enough just to be a good planner it
is also important to understand how to put various business processes in
place with a view to supporting an effective supply chain.

In the third semester, students can choose elective courses in their areas
of interest. These can be taken at Aarhus University during the semester,
at a partner university outside Denmark, or at the AU Summer University.
Students can also participate in internship programmes in Denmark or
abroad.

The Logistics and Supply Chain Management programme provides students with in-depth knowledge of methods for planning and controlling
flows of goods and information in a supply chain. This includes a solid
understanding of how to develop the necessary IT-based tools and how
to design a strategy for supply chain management.

The fourth semester is devoted to the final thesis. Students may choose
their thesis topic freely and thus have the chance to concentrate on and
specialise in a specific field of interest.

COURSE OUTLINE
The first semester features the following courses: Research Methods in Logistics; Advanced Excel; Production Planning and Control; Supply Chain
Management: Strategy and Design; Optimisation Methods; and Simulation: Modelling and Analysis. The second semester comprises the following specialising courses: Demand Management; Global Sourcing Strategies; Inventory Control; Distribution and Transportation; Supply Chain

CAREER PROFILE
A typical first job for a graduate with an MSc in Logistics and Supply
Chain Management involves specific analysis of logistical performance
or the implementation of new logistical solutions. One possible career
path is to start out as a logistics analyst, then progress to a project-manager position and eventually to an executive position with overall responsibility for business development.
