Overview
Munich University of Applied Sciences - Summer Supply Chain Management

The mixture of academic lectures and company visits makes this summer program unique! Participants will gain insight into several companies and learn about their successful methods first hand. 

Munich is one of the leading economic, technological, and scientific hubs in Germany. Many world-renowned companies from a wide range of industrial sectors are based here including BMW, Siemens, MAN and Linde.

In the first week participants visit companies located in the Munich area. In the second week a four-day tour takes students to leading companies in their business sector in different regions of southern Germany. During the company visits participants see selected levers for operational excellence at work and discuss company-specific topics with the managers in charge.
