Major in Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Having the distinct advantage of being the only college in the Chicago area to offer this undergraduate degree, graduates of the major in logistics and supply chain management study the distribution, material purchasing, warehousing and production operations. With Chicago’s status as a major transportation hub, students have exceptional opportunities to observe closely how supplies move from place to place and what systems are necessary to keep them moving. An undergraduate degree, combined with one of Elmhurst's numerous internship opportunities, allows graduates to transition into a career or to further their studies by entering a graduate program.

Aside from the core courses, majors take five additional courses in areas such as logistics management, strategic warehousing, and international logistics. Upon graduation, majors can successfully move into any area of supply chain management.

Minor in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Geosciences
Minor in Intercultural Studies with a Focus in a Business Area
