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.
In addition to general University requirements, students seeking the B.S.B.A. in Supply Chain Logistics Management must meet the requirements listed below. A minimum course grade of "C" is required in all College of Business prerequisites, major, and major-related courses.
Students should consult with their academic advisor for courses which may satisfy both the General Education requirements and common prerequisites.

College of Business Undergraduate Transfer Credit Policy
The College of Business at the University of West Florida is accredited by AACSB International, the highest level of accreditation available to a college or school of business. As such, the College believes that it is in the student's best interest to take all junior/senior level BSBA Core, Major, and Major-related courses at UWF. These courses are typically taught by academically or professionally qualified faculty members as defined in the College's policy on faculty qualifications.
Undergraduate transfer credit for degree programs in the College of Business is awarded consistent with specifications in the UWF Catalog and the requirements of Florida's Common Numbering System.
Normally, the College of Business will not accept transfer credits as equivalent to UWF 3000/4000 level business-related courses from institutions not accredited by AACSB International.
Students should seek guidance from their College of Business academic advisors on these matters.
In addition to the General Education requirements listed on this page, students must satisfy all additional University requirements, including the Gordon Rule, multicultural, and foreign language requirements. With appropriate planning and coordination with an academic advisor, students may satisfy some of the general University requirements through the General Education curriculum. For a complete listing of general degree requirements, refer to the "University Requirements" section of this catalog.
General Education Curriculum:
Supply Chain Logistics Management should take the following courses to satisfy components of the General Education curriculum courses:
|Elements of Statistics|

|Principles of Economics Macro|
Civic Literacy Requirement
The 2017 Florida Legislature amended Section 1007.25, Florida Statutes, to require students initially entering a State University System (SUS) and/or Florida College System (FCS) institution in 2018-2019 and thereafter to demonstrate competency in civic literacy. The 2021 Legislature further amended Florida Statutes, requiring students to complete both a civic literacy course and exam. As a result, there are three cohorts of students currently matriculating at Florida public institutions subject to varying requirements. As demonstrated in the table below, the exact civic literacy requirements are based on the academic term in which a student first enrolled in a Florida public institution.
|Students Included in Cohort||Civic Literacy Competency Requirement|
|Cohort 1: Students first entering the SUS or FCS prior to fall 2018||None|
|Cohort 2: Students first entering the SUS or FCS in fall 2018 – summer A 2021||Complete a course or exam |
|Cohort 3: Students first entering the SUS or FCS in summer B 2021 (on or after July 1, 2021) and thereafter||Complete both a course and exam|
Additionally, the 2021 Legislature made two additional exceptions: approving the use of accelerated mechanisms for meeting the course competency requirement and exempting high school students who pass the Florida Civic Literacy Exam in high school from the postsecondary exam requirement. These two changes are in effect for Cohort 3.
There are multiple ways to satisfy this requirement. Students should work with their academic advisor to determine which option is best for their degree requirements/degree plan.
