Why Choose Advanced Studies in Global Logistics?

The Professional Development Certificate in Global Logistics provides upper level coursework in logistics, foreign culture, purchasing, and physical distribution. It builds on a person's current knowledge and experience to become more effective in making supply chain management decisions on a global or national level.

Admission Requirements

Any person admitted to a Ferris State University degree program may enroll in courses for undergraduate COB certificates. No more than 50% of the credits in a certificate may be transferred from another institution. If a student is in a FSU degree-seeking program, the certificate will not be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are required in the program/major.  

Individuals wanting to advance their career, but not admitted to an FSU degree program, may also earn undergraduate COB certificates through the non-degree program.

Admission/registration process for individuals seeking only a certificate:

  • Unless it is determined by the COB Dean’s Office that regular program admission criteria should be met in order to complete the certificate successfully and be a contributing member of the course, applicants need only show proof of a 2.35 high school GPA. An advisor will be assigned by the College of Business in the certificate program.
  • Students wishing to pursue a bachelor or associate’s degree must meet the admission criteria for the program. This criteria review is initiated when the “Program Change Form” request is processed through the COB Dean’s Office.

Any mitigating circumstances will be considered on an individual basis by the College of Business Dean's Office.

More Information: Additional guidance can be found on the College of Business webpage under the Admissions tab.

Graduation Requirements

A Ferris student will receive the Global Logistics Certificate after completion of the requirements for the certificate with a minimum 2.0 grade point average in the certificate courses.

No more than 50% of the credits required for this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor will this certificate be granted if more than six of the certificate credits are specifically required in the student's major.
