Welcome to the Loeb-Sullivan School of International Business and Logistics, the business school of the nation’s most diversified and prestigious maritime college! Whether doing business at the local level, state-wide in Maine, across the Northeast region, nationally throughout the United States, internationally with our North American trading partners, or globally across the world, an understanding of international business and logistics provides for successful enterprises and careers. The Loeb-Sullivan School offers an undergraduate business degree in international business and logistics, while the one-year Masters of Science program allows a student to earn a master’s degree in business with a concentration in Global Logistics and Maritime Management.

The Loeb-Sullivan School is a highly focused and mission-driven business school, offering the finest transportation and logistics education in the region. We are a key resource center for the state of Maine and surrounding regions in the field of international business logistics and supply chain management.

In addition to our focused mission and unique graduate and undergraduate majors, what distinguishes us from other business schools are our dedicated faculty, small class sizes, an international focus, and our wonderful location in the Penobscot Bay area, away from urban distractions but close to hands-on manufacturing, warehousing, and retail operations. Given the seminar format of most of our classes, our students receive the full attention of their professors and pursue a challenging curriculum in various aspects of international business management, transportation, and logistics management besides mastering the core functional areas of business.

Experiential learning, a trademark of Maine Maritime Academy education in the deck and engine programs for US Coast Guard licensing, as well as in our Marine Science degree, prepares our graduates for a world of challenging opportunities in a global economy. Upon graduation, they exude confidence, competence, and professionalism and are keenly sought after by employers in international business logistics and supply chain management. Our high placement rate, even during adverse economic times, is ample testimony to the professional vitality of our graduates!
