The objective of this paper is to discuss results obtained from a Structured Survey on MScs in Transport and Logistics. An inventory for rail, transport and logistics curricula, courses, programmes and other training facilities has been created. Existing relevant programmes from European and other Universities of and Institutions for Higher Education have been collected and analyzed. For the collection of data a comprehensive questionnaire has been developed. We used “SuperSurvey” to approach intended respondents. SuperSurvey is a user-friendly online platform for collecting information using questionnaires. Our target group was professors, lecturers and masters programmes managers in transport and logistics. Information collected helped understand different levels of learning and structures of Higher Education such as single modules, bachelor courses, master courses, as well as mobility programmes and patterns. For the purposes of this paper we present a brief description of the questionnaire and a summary of our findings. In general, the results obtained suggest that most universities having transport and logistics programmes collaborate with railway-focused companies, while the logistics sector is less active in Academia-Industry collaboration.
