Your Course Content - What you will learn

Study Supply Chain Management (M.Sc.)

In our Master's program in Supply Chain Management, you will take an in-depth look at strategic and operational supply chain management and the key supply chain processes and modern digital technologies that enable or simplify these processes. You will also acquire skills in the areas of leadership and entrepreneurship as well as intercultural and international management. In the area of enterprise resource planning systems (ERP), you will work with current systems and applications, in particular SAP systems.

The Master's programme is the right choice for you if you... 

  • want to analyse, design and implement global value chains,
  • want to master supply chain and enterprise resource planning systems,
  • want to become an expert in current topics such as Business Intelligence, SCM 4.0, Big Data and Operations Research and
  • want to expand your international network during your studies.

The Master's in Supply Chain Management offers a comprehensive exploration of logistics, encompassing holistic, specialized, and managerial viewpoints, with a focus on practical competencies. Our goal is to furnish you with a hands-on, academically grounded education, preparing you for specialized or managerial roles within the field of logistics. Prospective career paths include opportunities for employment with both national and international manufacturing or retail companies, as well as logistics-related service providers.

Our Master's in Supply Chain Management is designed to enhance both your professional and personal development, providing you with the opportunity to shape your individual profile across these four core areas:

  • Business and Management
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Information Systems (with a focus on ERP and SCM)
  • Personal Competencies/Soft Skills

Moreover, a key objective of our program is to empower you with the knowledge and skills required for independent practical work in team leadership, personnel management, and both operative and strategic supply chain management. This also includes involvement in participative or executive roles within IT implementation projects.

Except for the final semester, each semester in our Master's program comprises fifteen weeks of lectures followed by exams. The concluding semester is dedicated to a practical internship, during which you will write your Master's thesis while actively contributing to a company. This hands-on experience enables you to establish valuable connections with noteworthy companies and potential employers, representing a crucial step towards launching a successful career.

Our innovative approach that pays off

Your Career Prospects

With the knowledge of the great importance of value chains and value networks, you will have a wide range of prospects in companies of all sizes. The degree programme prepares you for the following tasks, among others:

  • Managing global purchasing and procurement processes
  • Improving supply chain and controlling processes
  • Integrating modern digital solutions for industry, trade and supply chain processes
  • Developing supply chain strategies, e.g. partner networks
  • Analysing and evaluating solutions in the areas of distribution and e-commerce

In addition to the strategic, technical and economic aspects, you will always include the "people" component and the associated interpersonal approach in value creation systems in your work.

Fürth, with its close proximity to the bustling business hub of Nuremberg and excellent opportunities for studying supply chain management, proves to be an ideal location. Being in close proximity to the automotive industry, companies of all sizes and sectors in Nuremberg offer exceptional prospects for aspiring supply chain professionals.

At the WLH, we pay great attention to the holistic transfer of skills. As a result, our students acquire a wide range of methodological, professional and social skills in addition to strong practical skills. In order to promote personal development, we offer our students a so-called bridging semester, which can be used individually. The innovative "bridging semester" reflects our commitment to providing maximum flexibility for individual growth. How does it work, and what are the requirements? It's straightforward.

Upon reaching 90 credit points in your Master's degree program, you have two options:

  1. Continue and Graduate: Proceed with your studies, aiming to graduate at the earliest opportunity.
  2. Take a Semester Break: You aim for a bridging semester that you can organise as you wish. You can do an internship, learn a language, take intercultural competence courses - whatever you like. No tuition fees are charged during this semester, although you should bear in mind that your degree programme will then continue for another semester.

The bridging semester can be initiated after accumulating 90 credit points and, at the earliest, after completing the 3rd semester concerning personal and professional development, all while remaining enrolled. While a fee is applicable for this semester, the subsequent semester is exempt from charges. Importantly, the bridging semester is limited to one term, and you can determine if you have achieved the required credit points before entering the bridging semester. It's worth noting that the option to apply for a traditional semester off remains available, with the bridging semester serving as a parallel and attractive alternative.
