Logistics – International Management & Consulting MBA

part-time / distance learning
MBA (Master of Business Administration)
4 semester(s)


Logistics is one of the fastest growing industries on a global scale, offering many various career perspectives. With an increasing demand for logistics managers with an international background, professional experience or a degree that is recognized across borders can be an important proof of your qualifications. This is why we have developed a custom-made MBA program offered online via distance learning. It has specifically been tailored to logistics managers handling processes at the interface of different disciplines.

Relevant fields such as management competence, consulting knowledge and social skills have been added to the traditional areas in teaching logistics consisting of business administration, IT and technology. Students receive material by mail correspondence for self-study and work on the assigned problems, case studies and questions. During these phases, our e-learning platform offers opportunities for group study as well as for the purpose of exchanging information.

The teaching content is then complemented by supporting workshops and seminars on campus. During these periodic sessions of residential teaching, for which attendance is mandatory, students will broaden their knowledge - and will of course have the opportunity to meet their fellow students. The program is offered by Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society in cooperation with zfh and is accredited by FIBAA.
