Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Richard J. Wehle School of Business
Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management (GLSCM) Minor

Effective Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management requires the integrated management of the set of value-added activities from product development through material procurement from vendors and manufacturing and distribution of the good to the final customer. Global Logistics is one of the sectors designated by the State of New York as critical to the economic development of Western New York.

Students majoring in Management and pursuing a minor in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management must complete a minimum of 3 courses (9 credit hours) which are distinct and not counted towards the management major.  This includes electives for the management major.

Minors are an important part of the undergraduate curriculum.  If students declare a minor by sophomore year, they can usually complete it in a timely manner.  Students should work with their advisor to determine if it is possible that the minor can be completed by graduation.  

To receive a minor, a student must complete at least 9 credit hours of coursework distinct from their major(s) and from other minors, and students must complete more than 50% of the coursework required for the minor at Canisius. Please note that “ancillary/supporting” courses required for a major may still count as distinct courses as long as the remaining coursework still meets the 30 credit-hours required for a major. For more information about minor policies, please see the Declaring Majors and Minors page in the catalog.

MGT 325 or MGT 336 are prerequisites for many of the elective courses and should be completed by the end of the junior year.
