The International University of Logistics and Transport in Wroclaw was created in 2001. The main reason of establishing The University was the lack of higher academic institutions educating prospective professionals in logistics sector in Poland, whereas the increasing demand for such specialists is noticeable on the labour market. The vital intention of 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 above mentioned 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.
The establishment of the International University of Logistics and Transport in Wroclaw in cooperation with the French university was awarded the prize of the French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin in 2003 for the best European educational project, among 92 projects from the whole world.
