Global Logistics and Transportation Minor
Charleston is an ideal place to study logistics and transportation because of the Port of Charleston and the global trade and shipping firms tied to the South Carolina State Port Authority (SCSPA). For more than 20 years, the School of Business has been closely aligned with the SCSPA and many of our alumni work in the region's global commerce industry and at companies with supply chain operations.
Many of our students earn a concentration or minor in the fast-growing area of logistics and transportation. They complete an intensive, two-year program of study that includes six academic courses and a professional training certificate program. Faculty share professional experiences on national and international business levels and present curriculum that is continuously refined to reflect the rapidly changing trends of global logistics.
We prepare qualified students for the diverse cultures and business practices of the global marketplace. Our students' professionalism is enhanced through special opportunities including internships, a required study abroad experience, industry conferences and frequent contact with supply chain professionals. Their well-rounded learning experiences and associations rank our graduates among the most desirable corporate recruits in global logistics.
