Center of Excellence in Logistics & Technology
The Center of Excellence in Logistics & Technology (LOGTECH) enables and energizes participants to improve current operations and accelerate adoption of future logistics capabilities throughout their organizations. Through its integrated programs and sustained opportunities for “shoulder to shoulder” interaction between the military, private sector, and academic communities, LOGTECH provides a dynamic and unique educational experience.
Since 2001, LOGTECH has brought together key military officials, Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. government executives, academic thought leaders, and senior private sector participants to explore crucial and timely issues in logistics, supporting technologies, and business practices in an enriching learning environment. LOGTECH has served as catalyst for the development and delivery of executive education offerings, a unique Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program, subject specific forums, and numerous research projects.
Many of the nation’s top leaders in the logistics, technology, and acquisition fields have attended LOGTECH programs. LOGTECH serves the uniformed and civilian personnel of the DoD, DoD agencies, all the military services, as well as the joint commands and members of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and other U.S. government departments.
LOGTECH’s Executive Education programs are conducted in a first-class educational setting conducive to dynamic and meaningful interaction with top tier instructors and fellow participants who are logistics leaders in their own right. Faculty members from the University of North Carolina (UNC) with its nationally-ranked Kenan-Flagler Business School and 16 campus system, other leading universities, and private sector presenters bring unprecedented knowledge, insight, and real-world “business” experience to LOGTECH programs.
Two levels of executive education programs are offered. The Program for Executives in Logistics and Technology is for Flag level military officers (O-6 by exception), Senior Executive Service (SES) civilians, and senior level corporate executives. The Advanced Program in Logistics and Technology is for O-4 to O-6 grade military officers, CW4 and CW5 warrant officers, E-8 to E-9 enlisted officers (and equivelents), GS 13-15 (GS-12 by exception) U.S. government civilians, and private sector participants at the program and regional director levels.
To date, over 2000 participants have completed LOGTECH’s executive education programs. Hundreds more have joined in our forums, conferences, and research efforts. The network of LOGTECH alumni and colleagues continue to communicate and learn from each other through internal forums such as this web site and the LOGTECH LinkedIn group.
