I. Department Overview
The Program of Logistics Management was formerly known as Transportation Economics developed by the Department of Economics to admit students since 1994. It was changed into Logistics Management in 1998 after the reform on the catalog of majors initiated by the Ministry of Education.
The Program now has 16 full-time teachers (excluding laboratory staff), including 6 professors (including 1 Yangtze River Scholar), 6 associate professors, 5 assistant professors and lecturers, 15 of whom hold doctoral degrees. The teachers have organized and established research institutions such as the Institute of Transportation Economics, Institute of Logistics, Research Center of Internet Finance, mainly to carry out policy research on transportation, logistics and supply chain finance for Guangdong province and Shenzhen municipal government, and consulting on strategic development and planning of relevant industries and enterprises. The team of faculty has gained rich hands-on experience by hosting and participating in a series of scientific research programs besides teaching.
To align talent training with market needs for high-caliber logistics and supply chain management professionals, the Program has developed courses around the three emerging fields, namely supply chain finance, smart logistics and international port and waterway logistics.
