Bachelor of Science in
Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Logistics and supply chain management are partners in a carefully choreographed dance that keeps businesses performing at optimal levels. Examples are everywhere we look. Manufacturers depend on a steady supply of parts and raw materials to produce their goods, whether they’re aircraft, cars, computers, furniture, or food. Distributors require precision and accuracy in transporting items to the right locations at the right times.  Embry-Riddle’s Bachelor of Science in Logistics and Supply Chain Management prepares its graduates to tackle these problems and challenges and to be leaders in this rapidly growing industry.

Successful completion of this program will provide students with a strong foundation of knowledge that will serve on the job and prepare graduates for possible future training and education, including a Master’s Degree.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates a 22% growth rate in logistics and supply chain job openings through 2022.

After receiving a bachelor’s degree, possible professional certification programs include the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM) and Certified Professional in Supplier Diversity (CPSD), Association for Operations Management (APICS) Certified Supply Chain Professional or the International Society of Logistics (SOLE) Certified Professional Logistician.

The top five industries employing logisticians are the federal government, aerospace product and parts manufacturing, transportation equipment manufacturing, general manufacturing, and professional, scientific and technical services. (Source: BLS, May 2012)
