Global Logistics

The Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management pathway enables students to practice innovative and critical thinking skills as they develop solutions to authentic logistics problems businesses regularly face both locally and internationally. Students will learn the complexities businesses deal with in securing raw materials from distant locations, moving them across multiple borders, receiving them in various ports, transporting them to warehouses accessible through multiple modes of transportation, storing them efficiently and then distributing them to customers through networks that properly balance transit time with cost. This pathway provides students with the opportunity to earn credit and may lead to an industry recognized certification.
