The requirements you need to bring for the logistics degree depend on whether you want to pursue a bachelor's or master's degree. For this reason, the requirements are also presented separately.
As a personal requirement, you should have general university entrance qualification or full vocational university entrance qualification. Diplomas from foreign schools are also recognized, such as Matura, A-levels, General Certificate of Education, or IB Diploma. A certificate of certification is required for the proof of English language skills, which must not be older than two years. Alternatively, you can participate in the free online English test at the CBS.
The admission requirement for enrolling in a master's degree at the CBS is a first academic degree (bachelor's, diploma, master's) from a recognized German or international university, university of applied sciences, or vocational academy with a final grade of at least "good". If this grade point average was not achieved in the first degree programme, a separate admission process must be completed. The first degree programme should have been completed in an area of economics and have a total volume of at least 180 ECTS points.
The logistics management degree can be studied completely NC-free. A numerus clausus is not required.
