A string of recent disasters have demonstrated the importance of logistics know-how in providing humanitarian relief aid. But there are significant differences between humanitarian logistics and the logistics management practiced in commercial settings.
The Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute's Health and Humanitarian Logistics Certificate program examines those differences and prepares graduates to effectively manage in the humanitarian response environment. The three courses in the program cover pre-planning strategy (May 6-7), tactical decision making (May 8-10), and systems operations in health and humanitarian response logistics (Sept. 11-13).
All three courses will be taught on the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta.
