Business Process Control and Supply Chain Management, Master Programme

Frontiers in Logistics & Supply Chain Management 120 credits

The programme corresponds to the global competition requirements of efficiency, coordination, management control and development of business processes within and between companies in supply chains. It contains two different specialisations; the front in business and management control, and the front in logistics and supply chain management.

The two-year program is composed by the two fields of logistics/supply chain management and management accounting, a combination that is unique of its kind. One common theme in the program is to find and create efficiency within supply chains together with supplier networks, in order to fulfill those demands of value creation for the end customer that a competitive market imposes.  Another important theme is, by developing and deployment of process-oriented information and control methods, to develop and streamline processes within parts of the own company and not the least between companies.

On the specialization Frontiers in logistics & supply chain management, you deepen your knowledge from the bachelor’s level. The first semester contains the courses Logistics management in supply chains (which e.g. treats future logistics challenges when coordinating with suppliers) and Supply chain information systems (which gives broad knowledge on IT support necessary to manage supply chains). After the first semester, you will study integration of supply chains and inter-organizational management accounting, research methodology and e-business management. The master program is concluded by a master thesis. It is possible to graduate after one year. The program is held in English and recruits students from all over the world.

The other programme specialization Frontiers in Management Accounting & Process-based Control.
