He chose the Supply Chain Management program at WU Vienna because of the program’s interdisciplinary approach, its global reputation, and its international character.

The master’s program

The first year introduces students to the basics of operations and transport management and logistics. It focuses on relevant concepts related to business information systems and geo-informatics as well as mathematics and statistics. Students learn about the fundamental principles, methods, techniques, and information tools that are required for the analysis, management, and operation of supply chains.

In the second year, students select two in-depth electives according to their individual interests. These electives include topics like business analytics, location analytics, retail marketing, supply chain finance and risks, sustainable and humanitarian supply chains, or transport and logistics. In the seminars, the students apply the concepts and methods they have learned to real-world environments in cooperation with selected best-practice partners from the industry, laying the groundwork for successful future careers in many attractive areas.
