Bachelors' degree in Logistics approved

April 17, 2008

Albany --  Albany State University can now begin a four-year-degree program to help provide workers for the Marine Corps Logistics Base. 

Albany Technical College already offers a two-year program in Supply Chain and Logistics Management.

ASU says there's a need for a four-year program and yesterday the Board of Regents agreed.

Albany Technical College President Dr. Anthony Parker says the two programs won't compete, in fact he expects the approval to help grow Albany Tech's program. 

"I think all the institutions to a certain degree compete but this is an example where the competition brings out the economics of scale and the efficiencies of both and it brings out an opportunity to collaborate because we have students who have completed the associates degree and they're looking to go forward and build career and educational ladders that coincides," Parker said.

Administrators expect 30 to 40 students to enroll in the program when it begins next spring. Georgia Southern University is the only other Georgia school that offers the degree.
