Abstract

This study attempts to list and rank the essential or necessary skills that are required of a global logistician based on objective evaluations from industry practitioners. Centrally, the disconnect between existing academic curriculum designs and industry requirements is explored. The results provide a reference for instructors in terms of course arrangement. At the same time, the results also serve as a self-assessment tool for students.
