Logistics Management

Be prepared for the many challenges in a globalised world

Logistics Management is the ideal study programme for students who wish to utilize efficient logistics to unite the world.

Companies today are looking for employees with strong competences within business, language, and logistics. If you would like to play a central role in planning, coordinating, and managing the company’s flow of goods, information,  and finances in a global perspective, this is the perfect study programme for you!

 

Why not choose a challenging study that will provide you with core competences within logistics, international finance, and language?
Your career will begin from the very first day of your studies. Throughout the study we focus on highly relevant issues within the subject area, among other things by inviting experienced professionals and specialists to visit as guest lecturers. You will acquire core competences upon which you can build further – either in subsequent job situations or through top-ups either in Denmark or abroad. 

As a student at Lillebaelt Academy you will also have an opportunity to gain international experience during your period of study.

Career and future

Career opportunities

Be prepared for the many challenges in a globalised world!

We live in a world where we are increasingly and constantly challenged by the opportunities of globalisation.

Danish companies must be flexible and innovative to cope with this new situation, and although product development and marketing efforts are often initiated in Denmark, actual production is outsourced to suppliers abroad – in and outside Europe.

In future there will undoubtedly be a heavier demand for highly qualified and competent employees with degrees in logistics and marketing.

Effective logistical management utilising computer-based technologies and telecommunication with vehicles on the road, vessels on the oceans, trains and aeroplanes can ensure that international shipments will arrive just in time – and according to pre-arranged schedules. And with due respect for the environment.

The Logistics Management programme is designed and developed by the Danish Ministry of Education in close cooperation with business enterprises, organisations, the Danish Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs and the Danish Ministry of Transport and Energy.

After completion of the education programme graduates are offered excellent job possibilities within Logistics and Marketing in Denmark and abroad.

Further education

We are offering 1½ year BA Top-up, as a further study after Logistics Management:

The AP Programme can be extended and qualifies students’ admission to universities offering Bachelor’s or Master’s Degrees.
Generally, the AP degree will give two years’ credit. Opportunities to supplement the Bachelor’s degree with a Master’s exist in Denmark as well as abroad in countries like England, Australia and the US.

Lillebaelt Academy is constantly working on extending and improving the top-up possibilities.

At present we are working closely together with these institutions:

  • Huddersfield University
  • VIA - Value Chain Management
  • Syddansk Universitet - HA
  • Malmø Universitet 

Tuition fees

For full degree Danish citizens and for full degree EU citizens who are students at a Higher Level Education, tuition is free of charge.

For Erasmus+ students tuition is free of charge.

For non-EU citizens, who do not hold a permanent residence permit to Denmark, tuition fees will be charged. Read more about tuition fees here.

Scholarhips for non-EU citizens are only provided for Highly Qualified Students. No applicant will be awarded a Scholarship, before they have completed at least the first semester of studies here. Read more about Scholarships here.

SU

Higher Level Education gives students the right to apply for SU, which is a monthly Student Grant provided by the Danish State during studies.

Danish citizens are entitled to receive SU. International students are also entitled to apply for SU, but certain requirements must be fulfilled, for instance there is a requirement about working a certain number of hours per week during studies.

Read more about the SU rules here.

To apply for SU go to www.su.dk and log on with your NemID.

If you are going to study in Odense

NOTE! When you are making your SU application on www.su.dk:

  • Choose SU for: Higher Level Education/Videregående uddannelse
  • Choose place of study: Lillebaelt Academy/Erhvervsakademiet Lillebælt
  • Choose department: Seebladsgade 1

If you are going to study in Vejle

  • Choose SU for: Higher Level Education/Videregående uddannelse
  • Choose place of study: Lillebaelt Academy/Erhvervsakademiet Lillebælt
  • Choose department: Boulevarden 25

When to apply for SU

You may apply up to 1 month before you are entitled to receive SU. If for instance your study programme begins on the 31 August (later than 20 August) then you are entitled to receive SU from September (if you fulfill all conditions.). In that case you may apply one month before 1 September, meaning from the 1 August.

NOTE! Please do not apply for SU on the same day as you receive your admission letter. First you must make a confirmation of your study place and then a few days will pass, before this information has been received in the SU system. If you wait a few days, it will be easier for you to make your SU application, because some of your information will already be pre-registered at www.su.dk.
