The B.S.B.A. in Supply Chain Logistics Management is an included program in the University's accreditation by AACSB International.

Today’s businesses operate in increasingly complex domestic and global marketplaces. Managing logistics operations within such complex supply chains impacts all aspects of the organization, as well as, its customers and suppliers.  The Supply Chain Logistics Management major provides students with the core knowledge to recognize, understand and manage logistics and transportation operations and market such services.  

Supply Chain Logistics Management course work will expose students to core supply chain management areas of logistics, transportation, materials planning and management, demand management, finished goods distribution, customer service, global and intermodal logistics, transportation brokerage and freight forwarding, logistics analytics, and procurement.

The major builds an understanding of how logistics and transportation are managed by connecting students to business logistics in the field through interactions with executives in the classroom and in industry facilities.  Students will be skilled in identifying the critical service and cost factors when making business logistics decisions, and students will be equipped with the skills to evaluate trade-offs between the factors and to ultimately make the most cost effective and service effective logistics decisions.
