Production and Logistics Management Specialization

This program builds supply chain and logistics management skills that are in high demand. Managers and employees work in inventory control, purchasing and distribution.

According to the newly released 2018 Materials Handling Industry Annual Industry Report, 64% of the manufacturing and supply chain professionals surveyed said hiring and retaining a skilled workforce is the biggest obstacle impacting their supply chains.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that jobs in logistics are estimated to grow while one global study estimates that demand for supply chain professionals exceeds supply by a ratio of six to one. This situation is worsening with the retirement of Baby Boomers. Some studies assert that 25 to 33 percent of the current supply chain workforce is at or beyond retirement age, and the backfill pipeline is inadequate to satisfy replenishment demand.

The Associate in Applied Sciences in Management Development - Production and Logistics Management Specialization is designed to provide the skills needed to enter the job market or advance in supply chain management positions.
