Master in Management Application Deadline Extended [Education]
The Kühne Logistics University (KLU), the academic university of logistics and management in Hamburg’s HafenCity district, is launching a new master’s program in management in the upcoming winter semester and has extended the application deadline until July 31, 2011. The application phase for scholarships has been extended accordingly.
From September 2011 THE KLU is expanding its study offering to include a new master’s program in management with an optional specialization in logistics. As in other areas, graduates with the management competences that are taught in this course are much sought-after in the logistics industry. The M.Sc. in Management is aimed mainly at bachelor graduates with a prior knowledge of business and economics. The M.Sc. program is a qualification for executive positions in national and international management. The sole language of instruction is English. Tuition fees are €7,500 per year of study, or €15,000 in all. The course starts on September 1, 2011.
What is more, from the Winter Semester of 2011 the Kühne Logistics University is offering scholarships for bachelor graduates who would like to study for the M.Sc. in Management. To stand a chance of being awarded a scholarship, applicants must have personality, commitment, bite, and passion. They must also score at least 600 points in their Graduate Management Admissions Test. “The financial burden was an issue for me,” says scholarship holder Sebastian Sass of the KLU. “The scholarship made it much easier for me to pay my way. I didn’t think I’d stand a chance because I wasn’t a classic top marks candidate, and I was surprised to be shortlisted because of my other qualifications. I feel it is important for the KLU to offer its students financial support.”
Anyone can apply for a scholarship who has successfully completed the application process. Scholarship application documents can be downloaded from http://www.the-klu.org. The new application deadline is July 31, 2011.
