CF to Offer First Courses in New Logistics Program
Nov. 25, 2013
The College of Central Florida will offer two new logistics courses when classes began Jan. 8. The classes are part of the college’s new Logistics and Supply Chain Management programs.
Supply Chain Management and Logistics Systems Management will be offered Mondays from 5:30-8:15 p.m. Both are hybrid courses, which means students complete coursework both online and in the classroom.
In October, the college announced it would offer two logistics programs – an Advanced Technical Certificate, which is 15 credits, and a specialization in the Bachelor of Applied Science in Business and Organizational Management program, which is 120 credits.
“The logistics and supply chain industry is growing in our community and throughout the state,” said Dr. Stacy Dickson, CF dean of Public Service. “The programs will provide much needed training opportunities for high-wage, high-demand careers and demonstrate our commitment to offering relevant career training.”
The Advanced Technical Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a sequence of five courses providing intensive study for individuals who already hold an associate degree. Courses in the program are Logistics Systems Management, International Logistics and Transportation, Warehouse Management, Supply Chain Management, and Strategic Management and Decision Making.
The Logistics and Supply Chain Management Specialization of the Bachelor of Applied Science in Business and Organizational Management program will develop knowledge, skills and abilities that help students to understand management, finance and budgets in the supply chain industry. Students must have an Associate in Arts, Associate in Science or Associate in Applied Science in an appropriate field. The courses will include those in the certificate program, as well as more specialized courses, a capstone course and internship.
