The academic head Prof. Dr. Ninnemann explains the focus and the special features of the dual undergraduate degree programme in Logistics Management.
Dual Bachelor's programme in business administration with a special focus on the logistics sector
The dual study programme Logistics Management offers practically oriented Business Administration studies with a special focus on the logistics sector, combined with simultaneous systematic in-company training. It provides not only the fundamentals of Business Administration, but also selected contents from the specific logistics angle, adding modules such as Supply Chain Management, Transport Planning, and Production & Warehousing Logistics. The cooperation partners are mostly logistics companies.
At BAT I support the department Corporate Affairs for example with organising company events or writing press releases. This teaches me how to represent the values and principles of the company to employees and the public.
The dual study programme at HSBA was the ideal basis to continue my career in one of the big four auditing companies. The university has a very dynamic character and I am happy to have been a part of it – three very significant years.
I started to work in the internal audit department and during the audits learned more about the many different national and international subsidiaries and areas of the Otto Group. I find the way that HSBA and Otto support the further development of their students outstanding.
The study course Logistics Management does not always have to end in the Port of Hamburg. For me it opened the door to the automotive industry. I am responsible for the department European Sales at the DAD and my tasks for example are customer acquisition and visiting trade fairs.

The dual programme integrates phases of theory at the university (on average 32 weeks a year) and practical phases of training in their training company (on average 20 weeks a year).
Students acquire practical business administration know-how, specialising in logistics with industry-specific learning modules. Special attention is given to method skills. The foundations of business administration knowledge are laid in the first year of the programme, together with an introduction to logistics, plus method modules such as languages and law. As the programme progresses, there is increasing emphasis on logistics-specific modules, and the third year concentrates fully on logistics modules.

Are you looking for qualified young professionals for your company?
About 30% of HSBA's Bachelor students spend time abroad during their studies (mostly short-stay at Summer Schools or as an exchange student with one of our partner universities). In the third year of studies of the dual programmes, students can go on an international study trip. Furthermore, HSBA attaches great importance to the international character of its content, offering a wide range of seminars held in English. Fore more information, please see here.
Anyone interested in taking a dual Bachelor programme should normally start looking for a training company at least one year before they intend to start their studies. The application to the company should include all the usual documents, such as school and examination qualifications and CV. The company then sends the study contract together with the necessary documents to HSBA, which checks whether the criteria for admission are fulfilled, and if so accepts the applicant.
