Key learning outcomes

You will acquire information, skills and capabilities to work in development and management tasks that require logistics expertise, also in internationally networked organisations. You will learn about the impacts of digitalisation and the potential of new technology in the development of supply chain management. You will also learn to recognise the importance of collecting, analysing, sharing and utilising information as part of future supply chain management. Furthermore, you will be able to take sustainability and carbon neutrality perspectives into account in supply chains.

You can apply working life research and development methods in developing your own competence and organisation. You can react quickly to changes, create new operating models and manage change processes.

Education content and professional growth and know-how

In the Master's Degree Programme in Logistics, you get to examine what digitalisation and sustainability look like from the perspective of logistics. The programme has a strong emphasis on future-oriented content that guides you to think differently. Traditional thinking will not be enough to manage successful logistics in the future, and we must all learn new thinking and operating models. If you recognise yourself as a developer of the future, the degree is for you.

The studies include advanced professional studies, elective studies and a thesis that focuses on work-life development.

The structure of the studies (60 credits) is as follows:

Advanced professional studies, 25 credits: Logistics Management (5 credits), Responsible Supply Chain (5 credits), Digitalisation in Logistics (5 credits), Purchasing Management (5 credits) and Research-based Development (5 credits)

Elective studies, 5 credits: For example, Development as a leader (5 credits)

Master’s thesis 30 credits

Flexible studies

The degree programme is implemented as part-time studies. The studies include contact days both on-campus in Jyväskylä and online. The on-campus contact days are mainly on Friday afternoons and Saturdays. An academic year consists of around six contact sessions (Friday + Saturday) on-campus, and online contact days (Friday) are arranged every two weeks or so in between. The time between contact days is spent on independent studying.

You can choose your alternative or elective studies from EduFutura partner institutions (University of Jyväskylä and Gradia) and international studies from European EUDRES higher education institutions. You can also choose from Finnish and foreign partner universities, such as other universities of applied sciences and universities. You can apply for accreditation of higher education studies that you have completed elsewhere.

Working life oriented learning

The degree programme has a strong link to working life, and the learning and development tasks included in the studies are integrated into the world of work. Through active interaction, the competence and expertise of team members is utilised in learning for the benefit of the entire team. Current issues in working life are also highlighted by guest lectures.

Career opportunities and employment

The degree programme in logistics is intended for master of engineering and business administration working in specialist tasks with the motivation to expand their competencies in order to work in management, planning and development positions. The objective of the studies is to deepen the students’ competence in the different areas of leadership and management and to establish the skills required for working in development tasks that require special expertise.

Becoming an expert on logistics will open new doors and bring about new, challenging tasks for the students – and provide a possibility for career advancement. As a student, you will deepen your leadership, management and social interaction skills and learn how to work in international networks.

Having completed a master’s degree at a university of applied sciences, graduates possess the skills required for developing the business operations of organisations and actively producing new competences. This will develop your organisation and increase your know-how.

You will gain significant benefit from networking and exchanging expertise with the other colleagues participating in the programme.


There are no specific degree-related or statutory qualification requirements in the field.

Further studies

You may, after graduating, apply for postgraduate studies at universities or studies at the School of Professional Teacher Education. You can also continue your studies by applying for corresponding further education programmes in foreign higher education institutions, such as EUDRES higher education institutions. The university of applied sciences offers opportunities for competence development in various institutes, such as the open university of applied sciences, specialisation training and work-oriented continuing education.

Education planning

Working-life representatives, academic experts, master’s degree students from universities of applied sciences and Jamk specialists from various fields have been involved in the planning of the degree programme. The periodic assessment of the logistics’ Master’s degree programme was conducted in 2022, and since then, the programme has been developed to correspond to the authentic working life needs even better. The assessment was carried out by a group consisting of a representative of working life, an academic expert, students and teachers. In addition, an advisory board that includes a group of logistics experts and the management of various companies has been regularly involved in the planning of the programme. The education is developed based on foresight information and continuous feedback from students in the world of work.
