Career Demand for Supply Chain and Logistics
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for logisticians is expected to grow 22 percent over the next 10 years, with more than 150,000 job openings.

Upon degree completion, students would be eligible to fill roles as planners, analysts and managers of inventory, transportation and operations managers.

"The Supply Chain and Logistics Management Scholarship is available across all of our campus locations, extending the affordability of the bachelor's degree-completion program."
The Rasmussen College Supply Chain and Logistics Management Bachelor's degree curriculum is aligned with APICS and ISM industry standards. Students who earn their bachelor's degree and have two years of experience in the field will be eligible for the APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) Certificate Program. The bachelor's degree-completion program is also available with Flex Choice®, which allows students to take self-paced courses alongside their faculty-led courses at no additional cost and complete their degree in as few as 18 months.
