The perfect combination

Dual studies in logistics

Standing on your own two feet straight after passing the university entrance exam – it’s possible with dual studies at GLS. As a business studies student focusing on business informatics or logistics, or as a student in the area of software technology, you quickly discover how much planning and coordination and how many IT processes go into the delivery of parcels. And as a dual student, you experience the best of both worlds.

You will be quickly integrated and can gain initial experience with your own projects at an early stage. The required theory comes from the studies. A fixed salary and a period abroad round off the offer. And once you have finished studying, we seek the ideal entry point into our company together with you.

 

 

"I have heard a lot of positive things about GLS privately. In addition, I come from the area around Neuenstein and have my roots here. That is why I am very happy to have found such an appealing employer nearby. The combination of practice and theory with dual study offers me the ideal conditions to develop myself further in the specific direction of a specialist or management position."
