American Public University System and The Logistics Institute Enter Into Transfer Credit Articulation Agreement

February 05, 2010
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va., Feb 05, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- American Public University System (APUS) and The Logistics Institute have partnered to transfer credits on selected courses from each institution.

Those enrolled in The Logistics Institute's Professional Logistician (P.Log.) certification program may transfer credit from selected courses into American Public University's (APU) or American Military University's (AMU) undergraduate or graduate online degrees in Transportation and Logistics Management, Management or Business Administration. For more information on this program, visit http://www.apus.edu/alliances/logistics-institute/index.htm.

APU or AMU students seeking to earn the P.Log. certification at The Logistics Institute may transfer credit from selected courses to satisfy requirements for the P.Log. program. P.Log.-certified professionals are logistics careerists committed to lifelong learning in the service of sustainable business developments. They are leaders who initiate and manage change throughout their organizations, and are the key to success for a company's core competency in globally competitive markets.

"APUS and The Logistics Institute join forces in logistics talent development aimed at the global business community," says Dr. Victor Deyglio, President of The Logistics Institute. "APUS education credentials indicate what qualified logistics practitioners know. P.Log. certification confirms what certified logistics professionals can do. With both, the well-rounded logistics careerist brings knowledge and skills to corporate success in globally competitive markets."

"This agreement creates a bridge between real world experience and academic knowledge," says Dr. Oliver Hedgepeth, Program Director, Transportation and Logistics Management at APUS. "Our faculty understands the professional logistician needs, and our partnership with The Logistics Institute will allow us to further blend the best practices from industry and military logistics systems with the latest operational management theories. At the same time, the agreement will allow The Logistics Institute to continue to strengthen its logistics knowledge foundation."

Eligible courses at APUS for transfer into the P.Log. program focus on Global Logistics, Leadership and Ethics. These are among the foundational courses desired by global companies to manage organizations whose stakeholders encompass multiple nationalities and operate in dissimilar economies.

Eligible courses at The Logistics Institute for transfer include Supply Chain Strategies and Leadership Strategies.
