Graduate MSc Global Logistics and SCM 2018



Since I was 15 I was highly interested in Logistics and I always wanted to study and work in that area. Now, 10 years later my interest in Logistics hasn´t changed. After my Bachelor in business studies and logistics I was desperately looking for the perfect Master program to deepen and broaden my knowledge in that field. With the Logistics Master program of the KLU I found the best fitting Program for my requirements and goals. I have been in Hamburg for over five years now and I can tell, that it’s a wonderful place to study, live, meet new friends, party and so on.

Why I wanted to study in Germany:

I have lived here now for over five years and I am deeply in love with this city. I couldn´t imagine to leave this beautiful place, so I decided to stay in Hamburg for my study.

Why I wanted to study at KLU:

KLU offers a very good study program for Supply Chain Management. Besides that I was intrigued by the concept of teaching in English and small classes and the international environment in general. Also the KLU offers a career service helping by your job applications and other career topics. 

This is what Meike is up to:

I love to do Yoga and try to practice three times a week. I also enjoy evenings spent with my friend in restaurant and bars. Hamburg offers a variety of good and divers restaurants/bars and there is always a new location to be discovered.

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

Also be aware that you have to be constantly studying and preparing for upcoming presentations and exams. But don´t be scared, there is plenty of time left to enjoy your life in Hamburg.
