Program Description

Changing global environments pose great challenges for civilian and military logisticians alike. Response operations require huge amounts of material and personnel delivered in precise quantities and with precise timing. A key to meeting these challenges is a joint interdisciplinary approach to logistics.

The online Master of Managerial Logistics program targets inspiring logisticians, industry professionals, military officers and DOD civilians who want to meet the logistical challenges of the 21st century. A wide range of career opportunities exists in the logistics industry: logistics and supply chain management, operations management, purchasing and demand management, emergency management, consulting, retail and many more.

An advanced degree in logistics will help you stand out above others when you begin your career or are advancing your career in the industry. The logistics graduate programs at NDSU will enhance your knowledge, skills, and opportunities for a successful career in the transportation industry. Advance your education and become a leader who sets the industry pace.

The Master of Managerial Logistics is an online professional program consisting of 35 credits of coursework and is a non-thesis degree. All 35 credits must be completed using approved courses numbered from 700-789.However, each student must complete a creative component – which will be a transportation and logistical analysis of a chosen county. The creative component is the capstone experience, culminating all course material, applications, and research skills together in the Case Studies in Logistics course. An overall GPA of 3.0 or higher must be maintained to remain in good academic standing.
