At the end of April ambitious business studies students and graduates will be asked to cope with the logistics challenges posed by a humanitarian aid mission - using a genuine case. Strategic decisions and transfer thinking will be required of them; so will a solution-oriented approach and professional presentation. The winning team will receive a scholarship at the KLU. No previous experience in humanitarian logistics is required. The closing date for applications is April 20, 2012. For more information visit www.the-klu.org.

Bachelor's students and graduates, preferably with a knowledge of business studies, can qualify to enter the competition by solving a brief case study in humanitarian logistics. Those who submit a convincing result will be invited to the KLU for the case competition. There they will be set a realistic logistics task in the area of disaster relief for which entrants, working in teams, must draw up a meaningful strategic solution. They will present it to a jury consisting of representatives of a humanitarian organization and professors at the KLU. This is a task for lateral thinkers, strategists and people who would like to gain an insight into the vital role that logistics plays at aid organizations.

A short e-mail headed Case Competition to study@the-klu.org is all that is required. Applicants will be sent the qualifying case study. The closing date for applications is April 20, 2012. The case competition proper will probably be held on April 28, 2012 on campus at the Kühne Logistics University in Hamburg's HafenCity district (Brooktorkai 20, Fourth floor, 20457 Hamburg).
