Where could a degree in logistics take you?

You could find yourself deep underwater in a submarine, up in the sky or halfway across the world.

You could be your own boss, serve in the military or work for a major international retailer.

No matter what, you would always be learning and growing, staying on top of the latest technology or cultivating your leadership skills.

To enhance your marketability and advance your logistics career, professional certification programs are a must. But which ones should you pursue?

Logistics and supply chain management is a complex field. Earning your online bachelor’s in business administration with a logistics specialization is only the first step to developing the professional skills and credentials needed to succeed.

To stay up-to-date on new developments in this industry- and technology-driven field, logistics professionals must plan on earning professional certifications throughout their careers.

“Professional certifications keep you marketable; they keep your name in front of others in industry, as well as keeping you involved in your industry,” says Dr. Charles Oden, assistant professor of management at Saint Leo University. “If you’re committed to advancing your career, then you definitely should be investing the time and effort to acquire appropriate certifications.”
