If earning a Master's in Logistics Management just doesn't sound like enough of a challenge, how about studying for a Master's in Business Logistics Engineering (MBLE) degree? Beginning this fall, Ohio State University's Fisher College of Business and its College of Engineering will offer a joint engineering/logistics degree program. The school says the program, which includes courses from both the engineering and the business schools, will be one of only a few of its kind in the United States. The idea is to produce graduates who are comfortable with both the managerial and the engineering aspects of logistics and supply chain management.
The MBLE is a 45-credit-hour program. It includes courses in logistics and supply chain management, warehouse design, logistics technology, mathematical programming and computer simulation. Students taking 16 credits per quarter will complete the program in nine months, while students taking 12 credits per quarter will complete the program in 15 months.
Admission to the program requires an undergraduate degree in engineering, business, computer science or mathematics (or a similar degree with a quantitative content), a GPA average of 3.0 or better, a GMAT or GRE test score, and three letters of recommendation.
