The Master of Logistics (MA) program objective is to help students obtain a greater understanding of the profession while developing their problem solving skills or if they choose to pursue individual research interests to provide them with the necessary tools. The Master of Logistics (MA) program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Master of Logistics (MA) curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.

Logistics managers handle processes involved in a supply chain, liaising with a variety of parties including suppliers of raw materials, manufacturers, retailers and consumers. This is often a two-way process with return of goods. Logistics managers coordinate processes to ensure customer satisfaction. An awareness of and strategic response to external influences, such as legislation, fuel costs and environmental pressures, is vital.
The role of distribution manager within logistics may involve transportation, stock control, warehousing, and ensuring structures are in place to monitor the flow of goods and materials.
