Master in Logistics Management
Our graduate institute was established in 2008. Our major objective is to cultivate talents and equip them with global trade and logistics managerial capabilities. Our research fields include chains and franchising management, logistics management, international business administration, etc. Currently, we have two teams - chains and franchising and global trade and logistics in our graduate institute. After we finish integrating faculty resources, we will have more teams (e.g. international business administration team, etc)
We aim at cultivating talents with integrated knowledge and skills of trade and logistics, independent thinking and problem-solving abilities. We expect our students to integrate theoretical knowledge with practical training so as to provide helpful information to efficiently facilitate top management’s decision-making. With the theoretical knowledge and practical training received, we believe our students could be of help to any organizations right after their graduation.
We have 13 teachers, including 3 professor, 3 associate professors, and 6 assistant professors. Every teacher has his/her master or Ph.D. degree obtained either in domestic or international university and has a specialty in certain academic and research fields. The part-time teachers in our department are either full-time teachers from other universities or experts from industries and all of them have a master degree or above. Faculty of excellence is the most precious assets of our department.
The focus of our graduate institute lies in helping students absorb professional trading and logistics knowledge through theories and practical training with the commonality and professional aspects of both trading and logistics taken care of. Our curriculum is planned as follows:
