"As business becomes more complex and increasingly global, the need for logistics specialists increases
as well. Networked companies in a globalized trade need an intelligent coordination of all relevant
logistics processes. The growing recognition of the value of more effective and efficient management of
the supply chains has intensified demand for persons with a degree in this area at the interface between
engineering and management. Particular emphasis is on the development of communication and social
skills needed to perform these tasks in a global setting with high cultural diversity. Bremen with its
world-ranking seaports, important location for automobile manufacture, electronics, steel, shipbuilding,
and aerospace industry, has a long-standing tradition in logistics. With this background, the international
Bachelor program ”International Logistics Management and Engineering” at Jacobs University Bremen,
complementing the logistics competence already available in the area Bremen, was launched in 2007. (...)"

"The graduate program International Logistics: Management and Engineering (ILME) addresses:students with at least a Bachelor’s degree in science, engineering, and/or management who are fascinated by the challenges and opportunities of the modern logistics industry,the backbone of global trade, production, and distribution. professionals with a suitable degree, who are interested in both gaining expertise in cut-ting edge logistics research, and improving their professional skills in order to master the next step in their career. The program aims at educating and training leaders of tomorrow to deal with complex problems using engineering and management skills. It is designed to complement the Bachelor’s programin International Logistics: Management and Engineering which mainly focuses on logistics processes. The graduate program concentrates on describing, analyzing, and designing, and managing logistics systems on a network level. Current logistics systems face highly dynamic environmental conditions in a globalized and heavily networked world. One of the pre-conditions of efficiently running global logisticssystems is robustness. Thus, the program especially addresses the design and management ofrobust logistics systems. A logistics system can be a highly aggregated production network, a warehouse, a produc-tion plant, a transportation system, or a network which combines all of them. Therefore the ILME graduate program includes this aspect by covering several aspects and subjects referringto this ”systems’ approach”. By aligning the individual systems’ structures and the functionsrequired, value creation by the layout of the logistics processes is addressed. The approaches,the barriers, and the facilitators of the Change Management in a logistics system are treated. An emphasis is placed on the concepts and the importance of leadership that reflect the techno-logical and intellectual capital within a global logistics network. (...)"
