The University of North Florida is launching a new master’s program.
The Master of Science in Logistics and Supply Chain Management degree program kicks off in August and will be one of only two in Florida, according to the university.
“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 Dr. Mark Dawkins, UNF Coggin College of Business dean, in an email to WJCT News.
UNF cites the success rate of its existing undergraduate logistics program as part of the reason for the master’s program.
The university said nearly 90 percent of UNF’s Transportation and Logistics Flagship Program graduates are employed in Florida.
The university is now accepting applications for the 32 credit hour degree.
Applications for consideration into the inaugural class are due by Friday, Aug. 9.
Additional information is available on UNF’s website.
