THE NC ADVANTAGE
Individuals working in the logistics and supply chain management profession play a critical role in operations, often serving as the backbone of entire organizations. But just why is this such an important role?
For businesses and organizations everywhere, the effectiveness of the logistics operation can mean the difference between major profits and significant losses. Logistics refers to planning, implementing, and controlling the transportation and acquisition of goods, services, and information between companies and customers.
Northwestern College’s Bachelor of Science (BS) in Business Administration program with a specialization in Logistics & Supply Chain Management is designed to deliver the necessary core business knowledge, along with in-depth study of areas like supply chain management, principles of transportation, purchasing & materials management, transportation economics, production quality & control, and professional selling, among others.
Upon completion of the program, it is expected that students will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of the common professional components of the business environment
- Understand and analyze ethical behaviors in the business environment
- Recognize and apply clear oral, written, and electronic communication when making professional business decisions
- Construct and implement strategies to maximize operational effectiveness in a dynamic and rapidly evolving business environment
- Prepare a comprehensive business capstone project
What does a logistics degree translate into in terms of employment? Understanding supply chain management is a highly useful skill. As such, this program offers a versatile degree that can be applied in organizations across nearly all industry sectors. Illustrating the breadth of this career field are a handful of related job titles, including: logistics manager, inventory control manager, distribution clerk, operations research analyst, materials manager, purchasing manager, and transportation manager, among others.
Work in this field is fast-paced and sometimes stressful, but a career in logistics and supply chain management can be highly rewarding in terms of earning opportunities. When examining the average earnings of a mid-level position, such as a logistician responsible for managing the entire lifecycle of a product, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported a median salary of $74,590 in May 2017. An added benefit is the expected 7% job growth between 2016-2026, which is competitive with the national average.
While many schools offer logistics degrees, none compare with Northwestern College’s student-first emphasis that is designed to launch a successful career after graduation. To learn more about this program, contact us today.
