The Business Logistics and Supply Chain Management program from University of Missouri–St. Louis  leverages links with the College's affiliated research centers: the Center for Business and Industrial Studies and the Center for Transportation Studies.

Key facts:

The full-time program accommodates traditional students with baccalaureate or graduate degrees in a relevant area (e.g., business, management science, transportation, operations research), as well as more experienced individuals seeking a career change through in-depth study leading to a doctoral degree. A part-time program is also available for highly qualified students, such as mid-career managers with an MBA. 

The primary markets for graduates are academic institutions and research organizations, both nationally and internationally, and recent studies project a strong demand for new faculty in LSCM. Graduates will also find opportunities in the growing private sector demand for advanced LSCM expertise.
