Concentration/Minor in Global Logistics and Transportation
Kent Gourdin, Director, Global Logistics and Transportation Program (843.953.5327)
The Global Logistics and Transportation Program offers both an academic curriculum to undergraduates and a professional development course to individuals working in the field. The undergraduate component is a minor made up of six-courses (18 credit hours) that students begin in the fall of their Junior year. The highlight of the minor is a nine-day Rotterdam Travel Study conducted as a component of the Global Logistics Systems Management course during Spring Break in the senior year. Students also participate in a mandatory shadowing experience where they experience first-hand the day-to-day challenges of working in transportation and logistics. Finally, the BMW Logistics Program offers students the opportunity to earn the cost of their travel study by completing a suite of professional-development and career enhancement activities over the course of their Junior and Senior years.
