Abstract

The purpose of the study is to provide readers with an overall picture of contemporary logistics curricula from an international perspective. Comparative analyses of logistics education are performed among Europe, North America, and Asia, between developing nations and developed nations, and between continental nations and island nations. The findings of the study are of value in identifying additional educational needs of logistics professionals as well as in hiring new professionals. Little research has been done to understand contemporary logistics education in a comprehensive way. This paper is the first empirical study to use data available on the web sites of academic logistics programs to provide descriptive analyses of logistics courses offered at universities around the world.
