Supply Chain and Logistics in Education
With the looming uncertainty for students and professionals, many are unsure of where the jobs will be or what will be deemed “essential.” One thing we know for certain is that logistics is one of the American sectors with the most promise. It is a sector that will never be fully automated or outsourced because goods still need to be developed, manufactured, and delivered. People will always be the most vital part of the supply chain, making this field a lucrative option that offers a great amount of stability and certainty.
Many younger people are realizing these benefits and incorporating logistics courses into their education programs. Supply chain management programs are seeing a steady increase in higher education and there’s no better time than now to take advantage since a record number of universities are offering hundreds of specialized courses. Topics range from the all-encompassing Supply Chain Management to more specialized courses such as Information Technologies in Logistics. For students with an interest in the backbone of the economy, options abound.
