The International University of Logistics and Transport in Wroclaw was created in 2001. The main reason for establishing The University was the lack of higher academic institutions educating prospective professionals in the logistics sector in Poland, whereas the increasing demand for such specialists is noticeable on the labour market. The vital intention of the university’s founders was to educate managers who would possess not only the necessary expertise enabling them to manage modern logistic processes but also who would be ready to work efficiently in integrated Europe. In order to fulfil its mission, The University puts emphasis on the choice of suitable study programs, employment of appropriately qualified faculty, as well as broadly understood cooperation with other entities. Thanks to the cooperation with our strategic partner, namely the French university, educational program of the IULT guarantees acquisition of the knowledge and qualifications from logistics, transport and forwarding industries, at the highest European level. The international nature of our university, as well as extensive contacts with logistics, transport and forwarding partners, enable the IULT to realize an open form of education, by means of organizing guest lectures given by both foreign and local specialists, as well as study visits to companies. The abovementioned study visits support didactic process which results in giving students not only the opportunity to expand their knowledge but also to confront their expectations about profession with reality. It is possible thanks to international cooperation with numerous European and global universities, as well as leading companies from TFL (Transport-Forwarding-Logistics) sector.
