Everything you drink, eat, and wear is delivered to you from somewhere else—sometimes half a world away. Logistics is the systematic design and management of the many ways you connect to and the world. A degree in logistics and inventory systems provides you with the tools and skills you need to understand the way the world moves, ships, stores, and delivers goods. An Associate degree in logistics from Ancilla is the best way to launch your career in this fast growing field.
Ancilla College’s location, literally surrounded by transportation and distribution centers, is in the road, rail, and shipping nexus of the Crossroads of America. Today, logistics employs more than 250,000 Hoosiers, with 75,000 more in logistics-related careers with regional manufacturers. Overall, Indiana’s logistics employment rate in storage and warehousing is already 60 percent higher than the national average and that trend is likely to continue.
