About the Program
Logistics and Supply Chain Management as a segment of the economy has been growing rapidly as markets have expanded globally. The significance of defense logistics as a strategic advantage has been known for hundreds of years, but the use of logistical or supply chain management strategies as a source of competitive advantage only started in earnest in the 1970’s. The use of logistics as a competitive advantage is very common in industrial (business-to-business) markets and increasingly common in consumer markets.
Graduates of the Rohrer College of Business MBA with a Supply Chain and Logistical Systems Specialization will be able to not only conceptualize the value-added from logistical efficiencies, but also manage the resources (labor, materials, and information) that comprise modern supply chain systems which are in increasing demand from employers.
The Rowan University Master of Business Administration program consists of 12 graduate classes (36 s.h.) with nine required (27 s.h.) and three elective (9 s.h.) courses. The three elective courses allow the individual student to tailor the academic program to meet his/her specific career development needs. Prospective students who do not have the required foundation courses may choose to apply directly to the MBA program, and complete their foundation courses while enrolled as a graduate student.
Rowan's MBA program is especially designed to accommodate both full-time students and full-time employees. The program is personal, pragmatic and progressive. Classes are conveniently scheduled in the evening, on Saturdays, and online to accommodate demanding work schedules. Rowan's reputation as a respected regional university makes the reasonable cost of a Rowan MBA a wise investment.
