Logistics is one of the most critical components of successful humanitarian assistance. Delivering the right assistance to the right beneficiaries at the right time requires both skills and an understanding of the supply chain. Logisticians must continually add to their knowledge and learn the latest best practices in the field. This course explains logistics, explores the ways that logistics can affect humanitarian support, and gives students an opportunity to analyze case studies and develop methods for improving delivery of support.
The six-week online course will require academic reading, online participation, and research papers.
Humanitarian Logistics is a two-credit required course for the IDOHA module of the MIHA.
Registration is not restricted to MIHA students. Anyone interested can apply and receive two graduate-level academic credits.
