Global Logistics Management — Bachelor’s Degree Program (BA)

Program Description

An efficient logistics management system – making sure the supply of goods and services flowing through the system closely matches the demand – is critical to the success of global corporations. Logistics management professionals manage, coordinate and transport products from raw materials to the finished goods sitting on your local store shelf (or online retailer). Efficient logistics is a key reason consumers can buy an ever-increasing variety of goods and services at remarkably low prices. Not surprisingly, logistics also plays a major role in the health care industry where efficient, effective delivery systems are gaining significant traction.

The W. P. Carey Bachelor of Arts in Business with a concentration in global logistics management provides the necessary skills to develop strategic business processes in logistics management and understand their relationship to the global distribution of goods and services. You’ll learn to become a more strategic thinker and analyst, and effective communicator, and a team leader focused on efficiency, effectiveness and increasing revenue.

Career Opportunities

Logistics management focuses on integration and partnerships necessary to meet customer needs on a timely basis, with relevant and high-quality products produced and delivered in a service-effective manner.

Logistics management professionals hold a range of job titles and engage in a wide variety of activities in the private, nonprofit and governmental sectors.
