The goal of the Master of Science in Logistics Management is to prepare individuals for advanced leadership positions in the private, public and military sectors with specific skills and competencies in logistics management.
The applicant to the program must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Students who are graduates from other fields are encouraged to apply. Students with an undergraduate business degree or courses may be able to waive the program prerequisite in the program based on an evaluation of their undergraduate academic transcripts. Prerequisite courses are required of a student whose undergraduate major is outside the business area or who has not previously completed the courses in these prerequisite areas. The exact number of needed prerequisite courses depends on courses completed during the student’s undergraduate studies.
The GRE or the GMAT may be required for admission evaluation purposes. General admission requirements and the process for applying are discussed in the Academic Overview of the university catalog. Individuals who do not meet the stated requirements for regular admission may petition to take graduate courses for credit as a continuing education applicant.
The degree of Master of Science in Logistics Management is conferred upon students who have successfully completed 33 credit hours of graduate coursework plus other course requirements as listed on the student’s approved graduate program plan. Students without adequate undergraduate background will be required to complete the program prerequisites. Students may choose elective courses from several of the management or related academic disciplines by securing approval of both their faculty advisor and academic unit head.
Students with undergraduate credits for courses that they believe are equivalent to the program prerequisites should consult with their advisor concerning waiver of those prerequisites.
