CBU Online offers new concentration in logistics and operations

Riverside, Calif. —The division of Online and Professional Studies at California Baptist University has added a new concentration in logistics and operations this fall semester for its Bachelor of Arts in business administration program. The new concentration is geared toward helping meet the current and future employment demands of the region.

“This transportation industry is getting bigger and bigger, and the multiple ways you can put products into the hands of consumers is amazing,” said Dr. David Poole, vice president for Online and Professional Studies. “We have the opportunity to be a part of that, to help drive the educational component as companies continue to expand.”

The CBRE Group, a commercial real estate services and investment firm, reported that from 2010 through 2016 the Inland Empire region saw the opening of 13-mega-warehouses, each containing at least 1 million square feet of storage room. In Moreno Valley, California, alone there are several large warehouses for companies such as Skechers, Amazon and Sherman-Williams. The city also has plans to build the World Logistics Center to provide more than 40 million square feet of warehouse complexes.

The logistics and operations concentration is designed to broaden students’ career opportunities and help them advance into management positions, Poole said. Students will benefit from classroom theory applied to work-related projects.

“We have faculty from the transportation industry. The classroom learning students receive is the equivalent of real-world experience, taught by people who have been out there doing transportation work,” Poole said.

Students graduating from the program will also be equipped to address issues in a global content from a Christian perspective and are taught to think critically to lead and engage others in making effective decisions, Poole added.
