The University of North Florida is launching a new Master of Science in Logistics and Supply Management degree program, it announced Friday. The program will begin in the next fall semester in August.
“This master’s level logistics and supply chain management program is an opportunity to partner with the Jacksonville business community to strengthen an already thriving logistics and supply chain management workforce in the Northeast Florida region,” said Mark Dawkins, UNF Coggin College of Business dean, said in a statement.
The program, the second in Florida, is 32 credits and adds to the university’s logistics-focused programs, which have an almost 90 percent hiring rate after graduation.
“A master’s degree is a gift to yourself, allowing for personal and professional growth by sharing business knowledge and experience in the classroom with classmates, instructors and recruiters,” said Dawn Russell, interim director of the UNF Transportation and Logistics Flagship Program. “It allows you to prepare for advancement long before the promotion is offered.”
Applications for the inaugural class are due Aug. 9. Students with work experience or a business undergraduate degree may be able to waive the GMAT requirement.
