Description of the specialisation

 

ask a question

The Humanitarian Logistics specialisation is the university's response to the growing demand of organizations in the field of acquiring logistics specialists focused on providing broadly understood humanitarian aid in crisis situations of various nature and dynamics. Global climate problems imply a growing need for professional humanitarian aid. Due to the fact that the specialisation is implemented at major Logistics, much of the content of education is focused on improving students' competencies in the field of threat forecasting and supply chain management in humanitarian operations.

 

As part of the specialisation, students will learn how to forecast and value potential natural and military threats, and how to improve their competencies in the knowledge of humanitarian aid procedures, knowledge of humanitarian law, and cooperation with various governmental organizations. A large part of the classes is also devoted to cultural and ethical issues in various areas of the world, psychological conditions of humanitarian aid and cooperation with the media.
