The Faculty of Logistics at the University of Maribor is the leading academic and research institution in the field of logistics in Slovenia. We strive for useful, practical and innovative study and to provide graduates with knowledge that offers good employment prospects. To meet this end, we foster close and long-term partnerships with key business entities providing logistics services in Slovenia, which is essential for achieving our mission and goals. At the same time, our scientific researches and their results provide support to the economy in meeting its challenges.
We deliver accredited study programmes at all three Bologna levels. Study programmes are designed in line with current trends, while the interdisciplinary nature of logistics provides our students with a broad understanding of logistic processes and systems. Students are given the opportunity of a quality transfer of knowledge, the emphasis being on the encouragement of critical thinking. As a result, upon the completion of their studies students are competent logisticians – equipped with the logistical knowledge and able to demonstrate high personal ethical and moral values, they are socially responsible and continue to be curious and creative.
