Chair of Logistics at the School of Management at the Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá
Since 2017, the Kühne Foundation has been supporting the logistics chair at the School of Management of the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. Prof. Dr. Gordon Wilmsmeier holds the endowed chair and teaches courses in logistics and operations research in the Master's and Bachelor's programs as well as in an Executive MBA and Executive Education. He is also an Associate Professor of Shipping and Global Logistics at KLU and Director of the Hapag-Lloyd Center for Shipping and Global Logistics (CSGL). Since 2018, the newly developed Master's program Supply Chain Management with a specialization in Shipping and Port Logistics has been offered at the faculty in Bogotá. Research at the department is oriented towards the current problems in Colombia and Latin America.
The excellence and special quality standards of the faculty are reflected, among other things, in the highest accreditation of the National Accreditation Council and, at the international level, in the so-called Triple Crown accreditation (with the business school seals EQUIS, AACSB and AM-BA). This makes the faculty the only one in Colombia among the most renowned business schools in the world.
