Simon Koza – Supply Chain Management/Supply Chain Processes & Integration

Simon Koza started at thyssenkrupp as a student on an integrated study program. That was eight years ago. It all began in 2011 when the current Supply Chain Project Manager decided to study Logistics Management at the European University of Applied Sciences EU/FH in Neuss. After three years he had his Bachelor’s degree in his pocket. Right from the start Simon Koza was able to hit the ground running because during his studies he spent half his time in the central logistics department at thyssenkrupp, learning operating procedures and combining his theoretical knowledge with practical experience.
