Waarom Post-master Customs and Supply Chain Compliance studeren

Safety, security, trade facilitation and sustainability are strategic issues in international trade. Business, customs and other inspection agencies want to improve efficiency and reduce administrative burdens. These challenges require us to share information, build networks and work across organisational boundaries. We can only deal with these strategic issues successfully if we integrate knowledge about customs regulations and supply chain management, information and compliance, and improve working together.

If you want to explore the customs profession in its relation to safety, security, trade facilitation and sustainability with compliance and efficiency in international trade, then this programme offers you a unique opportunity to advance your career.
