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 then present their own case studies, individual projects and group work before panels of industry professionals. More than 70% of course staff are leading practitioners in their field of activity.
A GLOBAL VISION OF TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS
The triple-sectoral approach -international trade, logistics, transport- is in line with the current needs and challenges of international-focused companies.
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 you’ll need to deal with the complexities of decision-making processes. Students are guided by both their corporate mentor and 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 for our MSc Trade and Logistics courses, including a broad range of internationally-oriented SMEs like CMA CGM, Gemalto and Seafoodexport, as well as a range of SMBs with a strong international focus.
STUDY TRIP AT ROTTERDAM PORT
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 the many trades and structures, as well as better understand the international trade and logistics challenges and opportunities.

Enjoy a globally-focused course
Admission onto the MSc International Transport and Logistics course requires a bac +4 level. This year of specialization provides key skills in international trade and logistics. If you have a bac +3, you’ll need to complete an upgrade course first before starting the specialisation course.

• Immersion in a different culture
• Experience different teaching methods
• Develop openness and agility
• Acquire a global perspective
• Improve or learn a foreign language
• Create an international network
During the MSc International Transport and Logistics, you’ll focus on four main areas: strategy, logistics, management and negotiation.
