Companies support our outstanding scholars with a financial base to focus on their research for three years. The education is structured and practice-oriented to ensure a maximum benefit for every stakeholder. Company representatives, scientists and scholars are in a constant exchange sharing expertise – enabled by our program. For extensive, cross-linked and interdisciplinary challenges, we establish scholarship classes. Research, practice and training are merged in the modern spaces of the GSofLog at our logistic campus ensuring a highly inspiring working environment.
