GERMANY – Interested parties have only a few days left to apply for a scholarship to study at the Kühne Logistics University (KLU) with applications for its two international master’s programs, the MSc in Global Logistics and the MSc in Management, due to close on the 30th June 2012. Students with a bachelor’s degree who are aiming for a career in management or logistics may apply for a course at the KLU’s Hamburg campus.

Many students decide for financial reasons not to study for a master’s degree, especially when tuition fees are charged. They often forget that there are a number of opportunities to secure financial support. This year the KLU is again offering financial assistance to students with a bachelor’s degree who would like to study for its master’s programs in global logistics or management. Scholarship opportunities are available for applicants with ‘personality, commitment, guts, and passion’.

Applicants must have scored at least 600 points in the Graduate Management Admission Test, but good academic achievements are not the only key criteria according to Prof. Dr. Matthias Hühn, Associate Dean of Programs at the KLU who said:

“We are looking for applicants with the right overall personalities who stand out over and above their internships, language skills, and other qualifications.”

The KLU is sponsored by the non-profit Kühne Foundation is an independent, state-recognized private university located in the HafenCity district of Hamburg, an area which has ascended from a shabby docklands to the heart of a business district revitalised following reunification, boasting award winning architecture and a 25 year, €10 billion development plan.

Management student Eddi Haussmann pointed out the advantages of not having to self finance his course immediately saying that one of the reasons he opted for the KLU was the BrainCapital funding option that enables him not to pay his outstanding tuition fees until he has a job. In principle any student who has successfully completed the application process may apply for a scholarship.
