Matthias Erckert

Department Manager, Logistics and Production, Landgard GmbH

"Solving problems within international groups and to increase my international network were the main arguments for choosing the MSc International Supply Chain Management programme at Plymouth Business School. Moreover I got a holistic understanding of a supply chain and enhanced my analytical skills. I had the chance to write my dissertation as a part of a research project of the University of Plymouth for a large FMCG company based in London. The guidance and support by the Tutor and the learning facilities finally lead to success and made the whole study to an impressive experience."

Jens Buschfeld

"Choosing the MSc postgraduate programme at the University of Plymouth as a stepping stone towards an international business career in supply chain management and logistics was the only logical consequence. The programme contents, as well as the University´s reputation across Europe, intrigues international clients in my current profession as a management consultant. Studying abroad in a vital learning environment with fellow students from around the globe helped me to improve my professional competence as well as broaden my horizon as individual."
