This Business Administration - Supply Chain Management programme at University of Cologne is characterised by its strong balance of theoretical rigor and practical relevance. Both aspects are critical. We build on a strong research reputation which consistently excels in various competitive research ratings.


We regularly publish in the leading academic journals globally and present our work at leading conferences. Moreover, since most of the research is empirical in nature, collaboration with organisations is natural to the department’s members.

Thus, by being close to businesses, a clear focus lies on the investigation of current business challenges. In addition to translating our research knowledge into the current course offerings, we cover a set of very contemporaneous subjects. Of course, the impact of the digital transformation as a trend is felt throughout all areas of instruction.
