About

This truly global program takes place on three continents. Students will spend the first semester in Hamburg (Germany), the second semester in Shanghai (China), and the third semester in Knoxville (Tennessee, US). The final semester is dedicated to an internship and master’s thesis.

The Master in Supply Chain Management (Tricontinent) at Kühne Logistics University (KLU) is a smart career move – here’s why:

  • Add “global” to “supply chain management.”

When we say “global supply chain management,” we mean it! This degree program will give you the unique chance to experience supply chain management from the perspective of the world’s three largest economies. It will immerse you in the world of international business practices and you will discuss the effects of global economic trends with local executives and academic experts.

  • Take your career network to the next level. 

Throughout the program, students from all three of the partner universities will be in one integrated class. This puts you in a network spanning the globe and the supply chain business that will fuel your future career. And the cross-cultural management skills you develop for dealing with people from around the globe will turn you into a true global citizen. 

  • Learn from the best to become the best. 

The three partner universities all have an international student body, outstanding faculty, an intimate learning environment, and extensive corporate ties. They belong to the leading academic institutions for logistics and supply chain management in their respective regions. Learning from the best will give you a competitive edge in the job market and advance your career.
