Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you get study credits that can count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So coming to Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your studies. You make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay. Supply Chain Engineering starts every fall (September up to January).

Be creative!

You learn about logistic processes; on their own and as an element in the well-orchestrated chain that generates value for the end customers. You combine logistics and supply chain management concepts with methods and techniques from the field of operations research, in translating business models into well aligned processes, focused on serving the end customer. You learn to apply consulting, communicative skills for successful interventions. You are trained to work evidence based in order to create new supply chains or to improve existing ones.
