Multidisciplinary curriculum with theoretical and practical elements covering business, logistics, management and information technology subjects gives students a unique opportunity to receive a high-level education in logistics and supply chain management.

The centre will implement the research projects at local as well as international level in logistics, supply chain management and digital technologies. The centre will also support local and regional companies in the optimization of their logistics processes and adoption of new technologies. It will also train company managers and trainers in the various disciplines of logistics and supply chain management.
