Master of Science in Business Logistics (SMB-L)

Today’s Army faces many of the same challenges present in the civilian business sector: budget reductions, global operations, increasing consumer demands, and rapid advances in technology. Soldiers must be prepared to handle each of these challenges simultaneously. 

As a result, Army logisticians have dual needs for the logistics management education offered by Fisher's Master of Science in Business Logistics (SMB-L). One is to increase the capabilities of the Army logistician, and the other is to increase the overall efficiency and effectiveness of Army Logistics.
