Some organizations specifically seek candidates with an MBA degree or other relevant graduate degrees. This is especially true for technical and quantitative positions–logistics engineering, planning, and systems development. While graduate level work is not a requirement for many logistics management positions, it can be very valuable over the course of your career. A graduate degree can enhance your logistics management expertise as well as improve your strategic planning, financial management, and analytical skills. Such skills translate into upward mobility, career flexibility, and increased earnings potential according to recent research.
The MBA program is 36 semester hours (9 core courses plus 3 electives). While the MBA is designed as a generalist degree, concentrations allow MBA students to design an individualized degree curriculum that allows for specialization in a functional specialty. These concentrations thus provide the student with a unique opportunity to focus their skill-set and add extra credentials to their resume.
Concentrations require the student to successfully complete electives that have been approved for their chosen concentration. The 9 hours for the concentration excludes hours taken as part of the core MBA curriculum. In order to count an elective course toward a concentration, students must successfully complete the course by earning a B (3.0) or better.
