Master’s Degree in Supply Chain Management and Logistics

Master’s Degree in Supply Chain Management and Logistics

The MA program in Supply Chain Management and Logistics, established in 2004, aims to provide managers with in-depth   knowledge, both theoretical and applied, in a wide variety of logistic subjects such as  production lines, movement of goods, supply chain management and others. These are only a few of the many subjects that are studied in the MA Logistics Management program and which are so crucial to the success of today's logistics manager. Among the first such programs in Israel,  the MA in Logistics Management, provides graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge in logistics that will enable them to integrate into the world of business or academia.

Three-Track Option
