MBA: General Business Major  Logistics (Concentration) Track

Summary of the Changes: 
To modify the existing concentration from "logistics" to "logistics in supply chain management" and expand course options in the concentration.
Rationale: To address the existing limitation in the current concentration (some required courses have not been offered in a few years) which limits the opportunity for students to complete the concentration. Expanding the concentration will also provide students with the broad perspective inherent in supply chain management. Specifically, the concentration includes course options from the Logistics area, as well as options from Marketing, Management, and Accounting, all of which are integral to an understanding of supply chain management.
  Specific Catalog changes requested are:
  Change Catalog Entry To:
  Logistics and Supply Chain Management Concentration Requirements (9 credits)
