Programme highlights

A PROGRAMME WITH A THREE-TIERED APPROACH

The MSc International Transport and Logistics approach to training emphasises experiential learning and case studies. Students attend industrial conferences and conduct field visits to develop an operational and practical vision.

They present their own case studies, individual projects and group work in front of industry professionals. More than 50% of course staff are leading practitioners in their field of activity.

A GLOBAL VISION OF TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS

The triple-sectoral approach -international trade, logistics, international transport- is in line with the current needs of the companies and challenges of our global world.

 

 

A FRAMEWORK DESIGNED TO PROMOTE PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATION

Business projects provide participants with valuable hands-on experience in business conduct and strategy. They also provide the tools needed to deal with the complexities of decision-making processes. Students are guided by both their corporate mentor and a KEDGE Business School tutor. These working professionals remain in close contact with students throughout project work and during the creation of theses. The role of these academics is to help students build their professional profile and personal network. We have many corporate partners plus a broad range of internationally-oriented SMEs and MNEs.
