Supply Chain Management

Linking education to research and career preparation

Our education is strongly rooted in business practice and society. Also right from the start of your degree programme attention is paid to academic research and preprofessional development. Since an analytical and critical mind and problem-solving capabilities are important qualities in any career our students aspire.

In collaboration with external partners we conduct research projects on e-logistics, healthcare and service supply chains and operations, food processing, resilience, port logistics, SC integration, and sustainable logistics.

    It's up to you how you develop as a student

    I was keen to come to Europe because of the friendliness and openness of the people. I eventually opted for Groningen because of the high standard of teaching.

    I like the field of study mainly because nearly all companies have an operation function. I'm particularly fascinated by the way companies try to analyse their production processes. The MSc programme offers many Options. You can choose your own path with optional courses. If you work hard you can learn a lot from this programme. It's entirely up to you how you develop as a student. At the moment I'm doing an internship at Wavin in Zwolle, a company that makes plastic pipes. I think it's very important to do an internship as part of the programme so that you can get an idea of how things work in practice.

    "It is well deserved that the MSc Supply Chain Management has been awarded the 'Top Degree Programme' predicate by the editors of the Keuzegids."

    "Supply Chain Management is a very relevant field of study, for example because of the development of e-commerce and the increase in easiness of growing a global business. This is one of the reasons why I chose to study Supply Chain Management. I wanted to study something that is relevant in society. Something you can talk about on birthday parties.

    In this respect, the study has certainly not disappointed me. For example, this January (2015) we have visited the new distribution centre of, which appears to be the world's largest automated distribution centre for online retail. Next to this, the courses of the study also satisfied me. There is a large variety in courses. Qualitative, quantitative, strategic and practical. This enables you to work on both your soft skills and hard skills, and to develop a wide base of knowledge in different fields of Supply Chain Management.

    In short, it is well deserved that the MSc Supply Chain Management has been awarded the 'Top Degree Programme' predicate by the editors of the Keuzegids."
