Program Concentration

Logistics and Supply Chain Management

As executives continue to realize the positive impact that an efficient supply chain can have on a company’s bottom line, demand is increasing for mid-to-senior level professionals.

According to a recent article published by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, “Demand-to-supply ratio of jobs to qualified individuals is currently six to one. Most of the openings exist in middle management positions, in which there is a current shortage of 54 percent”.

MBA students specializing in this concentration develop a strategic understanding of the logistics and supply chain management lifecycle.

Case studies and coursework in warehousing and inventory management, transportation and distribution networks, and logistics information management systems equip students with the practical knowledge and skills needed to advance their careers in this dynamic field.
