Palm Beach State College (PBSC) was founded in 1933 as the first public junior college in the state of Florida. Today the institution enrolls nearly 49,000 students in over 100 programs.
In response to a need demonstrated by industry, PBSC is offering a course of study in Supply Chain Management leading to an AAS degree. A Certificate program is planned for the near future.
Florida is a major logistics hub due to proximity to deepwater ports, airports and extensive rail and road infrastructure. According to Kimberly Allen, Associate Dean of the Business and Computer Science Division overseeing the new program, “This curriculum positions students to gain valuable skills in logistics, transportation, distribution, procurement, inventory and management and boost their career and earning potential in this growing field.”
As part of the PBSC Business Partnership Council, WDSrx is helping shape the coursework and guide the program to assure skills taught in the classroom match hiring needs of employers. “WDSrx is proud to be associated with Palm Beach State College to promote logistics education and provide a pipeline of local candidates to feed the growing demand for qualified job applicants,” according to Larry Hotz, WDSrx Marketing Manager.
