CTE > Transportation, Distribution and Logistics > SREB AC - Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management: BIC



​Global logistics and supply chain management connect internal functions of an organization with other institutions around the globe. It is vital to understand the roles of logistics and supply chain management in a global economy where individuals and organizations have access to markets across the world. This field requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills to coordinate the movement of goods and services that may be separated by a few feet or thousands of miles. In an industry always striving for optimization, decision-making skills are paramount. The AC Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management (GLSCM) program 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 or employing the just-in-time model, and then distributing them to customers through networks that properly balance transit time with cost. Logistics is indispensable for the U.S. economy, constituting nearly 9 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).
