Why this programme

Analytics and Operations Research In Logistics

This programme trains you in the field of Analytics and Operations Research where advanced quantitative methods are used and developed to aid better decision-making. You also learn how to apply the skills and knowledge in multiple application areas of Logistics where the goal is to optimally design, plan and control logistics systems.

In this master's specialisation you will learn how to apply the latest quantitative techniques and optimise real-life business challenges. In particular, you will learn how to tackle actual logistics problems ‘from data to advice’. This involves designing a mathematical model, selecting an appropriate solution approach and implementing it as prototype software.

They send me to South Korea for doing a complete network re-design.
The master in Operations Research and Quantitative Logistics provided me with a set of mathematical tools which can be used to model and solve these problems.
In the Seminar Logistic Case Studies we worked on a real life business case.
