University of Luxembourg and the LCL
Founded in 2003, the University of Luxembourg is the only public university of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It is a multicultural and modern European research university with a personal atmosphere, close to the European institutions and innovative companies based in Luxembourg. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary research, the University of Luxembourg strives for international excellence as well as regional relevance. The University of Luxembourg offers a competitive package and an international research and teaching environment.
The Luxembourg Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LCL), which is a member of the MIT Global SCALE Network, is a cornerstone in the Duchy of Luxembourg’s overarching plan to maintain and improve the country’s position as a leader in logistics and supply chain management as it was ranked second by the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Indicator (LPI) by the World Bank. The LCL motto—Innovate, Impact, Inspire!—guides us through our excellence-focused research, outreach and teaching activities. The core program at the LCL is a one-year professional master in logistics and supply chain management (LSCM) incorporating a 3-week visit to the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA, while engaging industry partners—such as Ferrero, Cargolux, and ArcelorMittal—in the applied thesis projects. The master program commences this year with a diverse, high caliber inaugural cohort. Along with the master program, the LCL is starting its PhD program that will accommodate both theory oriented as well as application driven students. Complementing the education at the graduate level, the LCL will be hosting a series of executive education programs, roundtables to discuss contemporary issues with industry and policy makers, as well as industry seminar series. Beyond its educational activities, the LCL aims to position the University of Luxembourg as a leading research institution. The LCL is home for researchers with an excellent research record with publications in top tier journals including, among others, Operations Research, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Production & Operations Management, Marketing Science, and Transportation Science. Complementing the research and educational activities, the LCL emphasizes outreach activities via close engagement with industry. Currently, the LCL is developing rich and deep partnerships with local and international companies, most of which have presence in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
