University System of Georgia officials discussed Wednesday how helping students improve their expertise in logistics may help the state in a growing segment of the economy.
Dalton State College officials gave a presentation about its bachelor of business administration degree in logistics and supply chain management, suggesting they’re in a prime area for such economic development because of its proximity to railroads, warehouse and distribution factories.
The Dalton officials project logistics and supply chain management will generate 270,000 new jobs annually, about 10 percent of all new jobs nationwide.
Dalton State is spending about $10 million to renovate its Wright School of Business, which will house the degree program and others.
