South Florida residents who are looking for a great career gained a new option when Broward College in Fort Lauderdale launched its Supply Chain Management Express degree program in May.
Classes are designed for busy working adults interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in just over two years. The program is primarily intended for students with little or no previous college experience. Classes are scheduled year-round—during the fall, spring, and summer semesters—on Friday nights, as well as Saturday mornings and afternoons.
Apply yourself and the degree will be inexpensive, too. The college caps tuition and fees at $10,000 for students who maintain a 3.0 GPA and meet other eligibility criteria, a potential savings of more than $4,000.
"South Florida has a major geographic advantage for the global trade and logistics industry," said Russell McCaffery, Broward College dean of transportation programs. "With job growth expected in this sector, we look forward to providing the necessary skills training to our students to meet the demands of the local work force."
