Purpose Statement

The purpose of the BAS in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (BAS-LSCM) is to provide students with multi-modal delivery of a Baldrige-quality education as applied through the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) accreditation in logistics and supply chain management, business and the liberal studies.  Given LSCM’s requirement for significant coordination between multiple departments and firms, the program emphasizes communication, collaboration and teamwork, including virtual teamwork and its facilitating technologies.  After laying a solid foundation with a course in the fundamentals of logistics, the program provides separate courses in global logistics, sustainable logistics, logistics network analysis and design, and strategic logistics, including the strategic selection of information technology resources.   To broaden the strengths of our graduates and better prepare them for success in the business world, the logistics courses are accompanied by a carefully selected set of business courses.  Courses emphasize pragmatic, real-world-relevant content and utilize realistic experiential assignments, including many complex team-oriented assignments, with the students regularly encouraged to apply the ideas and assignments to their own firms.  The faculty, a mix of academics and experienced practitioners, are highly qualified following the guidelines of the ACBSP, with quality further promoted through a comprehensive outcomes assessment program as well as a mentoring program in which full-time faculty annually evaluate the course content of part-time faculty.
