The mission of the business logistics faculty at the Boler School of Business is to prepare undergraduate and graduate students for careers in logistics, which refers to managing the flow of goods and services. Careers in business logistics include aspects of transportation, warehousing, channel management, inventory control, order processing, and customer satisfaction.
How do we do this?
John Carroll is dedicated to developing socially responsible leaders. With a foundation in over 450 years of Jesuit Catholic teaching, our faculty focus on providing students with the tools needed to make ethical decisions in business and in the larger community. We believe in educating you as a whole person: mind, body, and spirit, and ensuring that all aspects of your education help you to become a well-rounded, well-educated person.
What does this mean for you?
Of course we’ll teach you about things like fundamentals of transportation, global logistics, and supply chain management, but you’ll learn more than that. In addition to your business classes, you’ll gain a firm background in the liberal arts, sciences, and communications.
We’ll teach you how to take the skills you’ll learn in the classroom and apply them to both your career and your life. You’ll learn both in and out of the classroom, being challenged to see how your gifts and talents can make a difference in our world.
You’ll learn from professionals that are leaders in their fields, who will advise and mentor you throughout your four years at Carroll. Your professors will expose you to aspects of global business, information technology, and the application of professional ethics/morals, as well as instilling you with technical competence and analytical skills.
Where do alumni go after graduation?
The logistics field is extensive and many business organizations are potential employers. There is a shortage of college graduates to fill available entry-level positions, and these opportunities are expected to grow because of the increasing emphasis on the efficient movement of goods and information. Entry-level positions are available to graduates in such areas as logistics analysis, traffic and transportation, warehousing operations, consulting, third-party logistics, and customer service. Summer and part-time work is often available. These opportunities provide students with valuable, practical experience in logistics.
