Programme highlights

The Master of Science (MSc) in 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.

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.

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.

During the MSc International Transport and Logistics, it’s possible for students to arrange an overseas trip to the port city of Rotterdam as part of the course focus on the maritime industry. In doing so, students will discover more about its many trades and structures, and gain a better understanding of the international trade and logistics challenges and opportunities.

As 90% of the international trade is done by Maritime transportation and because of the Marseille DNA and interconnection with economic local and international players.

Delivered during the training, this certification brings:

- recognition by international experts,

- access to a global network of 4,300 members in 146 countries
