Ideal student profile

To be admitted to the master's degree you must hold an official university qualification valid for admission to master's degree courses in the country in which it was obtained.

Basic skills

  • Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity for originality in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context
  • Student should possess an ability to learn that enables them to continue studying in a manner which is largely self-supervised or independent
  • Students should know how to apply the knowledge they acquire and be capable of solving problems in new or little-known areas within broader contexts (or multidisciplinary contexts) related to their area of study
  • Students should be able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgements from information which, being incomplete or limited, include reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgements
  • Students should know how to communicate their conclusions, knowledge and final reasoning that they hold in front of specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously

Specific skills

  • Address problems of management and coordination of logistics operations in production, transport and services in a holistic approach, by means of the consistent application of the supply chain management concepts and strategies, taking into account the pertinent aspects of environment, human capital, quality, technology, and economics.
  • Analyse, organise and discuss situations in logistics in order to identify and model the dependency relationships, influence and impact that usually occur in the main performance indicators and quality factors as well as evaluating their complexity.
  • Select and apply the most relevant analytical methodologies, strategies and current technologies for designing solutions to the problams of management and coordination of material, information and financial flows.
  • Elaborate solid arguments based on quantitative models and analytical methods in order to convince and motivate decision makers, determine the adequate LCSM partners and then plan and coordinate the project to implement the solution.
  • Apply quantitative methods and techniques based on optimisation and/or simulation models in order to evaluate the different alternatives and select the most promising solution to be implemented

Cross-curricular skills

  • Demonstrate abilities in oral and written communication both in the student's native language and in English.
  • Demonstrate synthesis skills and ability in presentation techniques.
  • Demonstrate information management skills: ability to retrieve and analyse information from different sources.
  • Work collaboratively in a group. Demonstrate abilities to document and reflect the problem-solving process in order to extract the lessons learned.
  • Apply a rigorous and efficient approach to problem solving.
  • Face a new problem under a scientific perspective.
  • Identify the main aspects to be planned in the resolution of a logistic project, specifying the project boundaries, and leading with a solution
