Study Programme

This programme focuses on competency-based learning. This means you will acquire the knowledge, skills and attitude required in your future career. Collaboration, communication and organisational skills are key ingredients, which is why you will often work on real-life projects together with fellow students. More specifically, one of the projects will teach you how to organise a production plant as well as everything related to delivering goods to customers.

Study lay out

In the first and second year, you complete projects, courses, training courses and coaching sessions. You learn how to plan and organise the production, transportation and warehousing processes. You will finish these two years with an industry project on transport and distribution. In the third year you carry out two work placements, both for three months at, for example, a production company or wholesale companies. In the second part of that year you will deepen your theoretical knowledge. In the fourth year you will choose for example a minor Supply Chain or Change Management. Additionally you work on your graduation project for an international company in the Netherlands or abroad, where the business language is English.
