Graduate Programs

The Loeb-Sullivan School of International Business & Logistics

The Loeb-Sullivan School of International Business & Logistics offers two Master of Science degrees; the Online MS in International Logistics Management and the Master’s & Commander program.

These graduate programs prepare students for the challenges of managing the logistics of global supply chains from both a strategic and operational perspective. Our graduate programs encompass the ability to analyze and evaluate the flow of goods, customer service, finances, and information from the supplier’s suppliers to the ultimate consumer. The curriculum emphasizes concepts and theories in the fields of global marketing and sourcing, inventory, distribution, and transportation management as well as the supporting economics and accounting. Students study logistics in the context of a supply chain management philosophy in addition to the set of operational processes that can optimize the international supply chain. Our M & C students also take the SVO courses necessary to complete the USCG exam for the 200 Gross Ton Mate Near Coastal license.

Using a variety of pedagogy from case studies, course projects, experiential learning, and traditional seminars, graduates are grounded in general management capability preparing them to contribute strategic and organizational efforts toward effective supply chain management. This enables our graduates to effectively lead logistics and supply chain organizations on a course in a global economy. Our M & C candidates will also have the added hands-on knowledge that will enable them to become successful mariners.
