    Has anyone successfully completed and found a job after earning a bachelors in logistics?

    Or do you know anyone who has? 

    Thanks.

    Ive never heard of a logistics major. We have a logistics dept here at my company and I think they get paid fairly well though.

    I'm a regional logistics manager for a very large company. The money is decent working in distribution centers for large companies. Lower level management for Amazon/target/walmart pay 60-80k starting out as managers in a distribution center.

    I majored in business management and HR.

    Where are u from b?

    But like others said major in supply chain managmanagement or something like operations research/management. It should be fairly easy getting a job after majoring in it and you will probably start out at like 45-65k.

    Operations Research is a very quantitative major (not really comparable to SCM/OM) and is pretty rare, only school I've seen offering it at the undergraduate level is Princeton, needless to say if you graduate with a BS in ORFE from Princeton you will be very well off.

    Tbh idk too much about the major lol I just know a person who majored in that but at CMU back in the days and idt he's well off tho.

    But back on topic, you can also major in industrial engineering and do something SCM related.

    Yeah, same. You can eat pretty good in this field, especially since you can push over 6 figures with OT.
