Student story about study on Logistics and Management (Economics)

Student stories 18 June 2007, 00:00

Did you know that following the Logistics programme opens up such a wide scala of career possibilities? You can work in purchasing, production logistics, business organisation, and at many more positions.

Simone Smedes, a 3rd year student of Logistics and Management (Economics) programme of Han University of Applied Sciences, talks about her choice.

Why logistics?

My parents had a small transport firm, so that’s why logistics was a logical choice for me. I am really glad that I chose Logistics at Arnhem. The programme is small-scale and that means you get more attention and have good contacts with the lecturers.

They are also closely involved with their field in practice and that means lively and interesting lectures and realistic projects. Added to that, Arnhem is a friendly city with an inviting social life. In my case, I regularly go to the bars on the HAN campus: HANgar and Place 99.

Something to consider?

I am a member of the Programme Council. This committee takes its members seriously when it comes to discussing the good and bad aspects of the programme. In this way, you have a say in the quality of the programme.

This is a tremendous motivator. Not only that, but it is also good for your professional contacts, especially if you are looking for a placement or graduation assignment. Definitely worthwhile!

Your future plans?

During my placement I discovered that purchasing was rather dull for me. The aviation sector appeals to me a lot more: dynamic, tourism and internationally-oriented. I have just applied for a graduation assignment at KLM (the largest airline in the Netherlands) and now it’s a matter of waiting to see whether they have a good assignment for me at the right time!
