Full Degree Programme

Be prepared for the many challenges in a globalised world

Logistics Management is the ideal study programme for students who wish to utilise efficient logistics to unite the world.

Companies today are looking for employees with strong competences within business, language, and logistics. If you would like to play a central role in planning, coordinating, and managing the company’s flow of goods and information in a global setting, this is the perfect study programme for you!

Why not choose a challenging study that will provide you with core competences within logistics, international finance, and supply chain management?
Your career begins from the very first day of your studies. Throughout the programme, we focus on highly relevant issues within the subject area, amongst other things, by having experienced professionals and specialists visit as guest lecturers. You will acquire core competences upon which you can build further – either in subsequent job situations or through Top-Ups either in Denmark or abroad.

As a student at UCL University College, you will also have an opportunity to gain international experience during your period of study.

International possibilities

International profile

As a student at UCL University College, it is possible to create an international profile during your studies. Depending on your chosen programme you can go on short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.

The knowledge and insights that come from international experiences, as you encounter cultures of other countries, can be useful for more than personal enrichment. Such insights may also make you highly attractive to the Danish and international job markets.

Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will develop yourself both professionally and personally, and you have a great opportunity to make friends and a network abroad.

 

Internship

Practical experience

One of the things that characterise the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will receive an education that emphasises practical experience. Amongst other things, you will work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. The most practically-oriented part of the study is the internship, which is an integrated part of all study programmes at UCL.

The internship is your chance to use and test your knowledge and theory in the 'real world'. The internship also gives you the opportunity to test, what exactly you want to do with your degree once graduated. 

When the time comes for you to find your first job as a graduate, you will because of a strong internship not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience of how it is to work in your specific field of interest.

Career and further education

We live in a world where we are increasingly and constantly challenged by the opportunities of globalisation.

Danish companies must be flexible and innovative to cope with this new situation, and although product development and marketing efforts are often initiated in Denmark, actual production is outsourced to suppliers abroad – in and outside Europe.

In the future, there will undoubtedly be a heavier demand for highly qualified and competent employees with degrees in logistics and marketing.

Effective logistical management utilising computer-based technologies and telecommunication with vehicles on the road, vessels on the oceans, trains, and aeroplanes can ensure that international shipments will arrive just in time – and according to pre-arranged schedules. And with due respect for the environment.

The Logistics Management programme is designed and developed by the Danish Ministry of Education in close cooperation with business enterprises, organisations, the Danish Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs and the Danish Ministry of Transport and Energy.

After completion of the study programme graduates have excellent job possibilities within Logistics and Marketing in Denmark and abroad.

Further education

We offer a 1½-years BA Top-Up, as a further study after Logistics Management.

The Academy Profession (AP) Programme can be extended and qualifies students’ admission to universities offering Bachelor’s or Master’s Degrees.
Generally, the AP degree will give two years’ credit. Opportunities to supplement the Bachelor’s degree with a Master’s exist in Denmark as well as abroad in countries like England, Australia, and the US.

UCL is constantly working on extending and improving the Top-Up possibilities.

At present we are working closely together with these institutions:

  • Huddersfield University
  • VIA - Value Chain Management
  • Syddansk Universitet - HA
  • Malmø Universitet
