Letter from the Director

Dear Prospective Student,

We seek outstanding individuals looking for a challenging program that will equip them with strong managerial and technical skills in logistics. This is a program for passionate individuals who want to excel at what they do.

One of only a handful of similar programs at top universities in the country, the Master in Business Logistics Engineering (MBLE) program is designed to enable graduates to enter the job market equally comfortable with logistics strategy, the management of logistics operations, and engineering tasks such as facility design and implementation of logistics technology. The curriculum blends theoretical and applied courses.

In addition to the logistics education, as an MBLE student you will be a full participant of the activities of both Fisher College of Business and the Integrated Systems Engineering Department at Ohio State University's College of Engineering. For instance, you will have access to Fisher's Leadership and Professional Development (LPD) program and to opportunities to travel and study abroad. These programs will help you sharpen your professional skills and gain the ability and confidence to become a leader in tomorrow’s global business environment.

The MBLE program draws its faculty from Fisher’s Department of Marketing and Logistics and the College of Engineering’s Department of Integrated Systems Engineering — both ranked in the top 20 in their fields by U.S. News & World Report. Ohio State University's Supply Chain and Logistics program is ranked as one of the top in the nation at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Fisher’s Office of Career Management will work with you to help find internships and full-time employment. They will help you prepare for the job search process and facilitate contacts with an extensive network of corporations that recruit at Ohio State University.

I hope you find this site to be a wonderful source of information about the MBLE experience. Let us know if you have any remaining questions after perusing the site. Thank you for your interest in the MBLE.

Take care,

David Widdifield
