Graduate MSc Global Logistics 2015



Logistics is a topic that has acquired significant relevance in the past years, and since my Bachelor studies I have been involved in related activities such as working on advisory services for exporting companies in my hometown, or coordinating imports and export shipments, which made me realize the importance of managing an efficient supply chain and the many potential benefits of doing so.  Besides this, I obtained a minor in International Logistics, boosting my career towards that path. Another important and decisive factor is, I love pretty much everything that is international. I have had the opportunity to reside in different countries, from Brazil to Austria, and have lived experiences in some others as diverse as China and Canada. For this reason I was eager to conduct my graduate studies abroad, having a particular interest in Germany because of the language and the example as the country it is, and that is how I came up across the KLU.

Why I wanted to study in Germany:

Germany is a country I have always been attracted to, regarding language, culture, people, history, and economy. When I was looking for universities where to study, I started looking at the German ones. 

Why I wanted to study at KLU:

When I found the KLU and saw that it is a Logistics specialized university, I was totally hooked. Its location in the most important seaport in Germany and second most important in Europe was a huge plus.

This is what Cesar is up to:

  • Bachelor in International Business with minor in International Logistics
  • Internship at the United Nations Office for Project Services in Copenhagen
  • About to start the semester abroad at the Technical University of Denmark
  • Specializing in sustainability in logistics
  • Learning languages

Cesar’s tips for Hamburg:

I have found Hamburg to be a lovely and cozy city, despite its size you don’t feel like it is actually that large, it is very well connected and very easy to move from one place to another. There are a lot of things going on and several activities to enjoy. The nightlife in Hamburg is particularly special, quite amusing. If you are coming make sure to look for accommodation in advance as it might take some time and effort.

What is one piece of advice Cesar would give to a prospective student interested in KLU?

If you are interested in enrolling but you have any doubt or concern, make sure to contact any student or staff from the KLU, everyone is very nice and will surely help you with any question you might have.

What Cesar hopes to do after graduation:

I would like to stay in Europe for a while, work in one of the big players such as the United Nations or in the private sector such as DHL, though strongly involved in a sustainability in transportation role. After that only time will tell.

What Cesar likes the most about KLU:

There are many things that I really like about the KLU, beginning with the professors, they are very recognized internationally and with a lot of academic and industry knowledge, I believe this is a very important asset in the university’s image and prestige. Besides that the overall experience of studying in an international environment, all in English while being in Germany, and in a top location at the Hafencity in Hamburg, it makes it a great experience.
