Course objective

Our Executive MBA in Leadership & Logistics is an exciting educational experience focused on preparing high potential professionals to become global leaders in supply chain operations and management. Enjoy the advantages of studying at Kühne Logistics University – with its interactive learning experience, its international environment, and its vital relationships to the business world.

Students completing this program acquire practical knowledge and skills enabling them to:

Lead and manage global businesses having complex international operations;

Develop effective corporate and supply strategies to compete in complex international settings;

Understand complexities of intercultural cooperation to ensure effective interaction with international subsidiaries and partners;

Leverage the creative energies of themselves and their colleagues to create innovative solutions to global operational issues that are both sustainable and profitable.

Studying at KLU means learning in an international, multi-cultural atmosphere: our students and professors come from all over the world, all of our courses are held in English, and our curricula address the international issues facing today’s businesses. The EMBA is an eighteen month long part time program mixing class room work with team based projects. Two international trips are integrated into the curriculum to provide the students with background information on how other cultures learn and work. A capstone project (thesis) based on a real world problem of importance to the student and their employer integrates the knowledge developed throughout the program and provides the student with a transition from learning to actual practice.

The KLU EMBA provides students with the tools and frameworks needed to analyze and understand the competitive landscape on local, regional, national and international scales. The students also learn how corporate financial practices can be implemented to ensure that appropriate resources are available for the sustainability of their strategies. Finally, students learn skills to enhance their organizational leadership capabilities so that they can effectively lead their organizations for long term value creation.
