The BBA in Logistics and Supply Chain Management offers students the foundational knowledge and practical skills that are essential for efficient logistics and supply chain operations. Logistics typically refers to activities that occur within the boundaries of a single organization and supply chains refer to networks of companies that work together and coordinate their actions to deliver a product to market. Traditional logistics focuses its attention on activities such as procurement, distribution, maintenance, and inventory management. Supply Chain Management (SCM) acknowledges all of traditional logistics and also includes activities such as marketing, new product development, finance, and customer service.
The BBA in Logistics and Supply Chain Management will build on the Associates of Science in Business Administration pathway already established at GHC. Therefore, the lower division courses required by the proposed degree, and of all BBA students, are already in place. Students will be required to complete a minimum of 50 credit hours under the business administration pathway prior to applying to the BBA program.
