I am interested in a graduate-level certificate in Logistics Management that is 100% online. What are my best options as far as a high quality program and good value for my money?

View all accredited online certificates in operations (including logistics management)

Here are the most affordable options:

American Public University - $5,400
Central Michigan University - $10,480

Logistics Management as an academic major can mean different things in terms of the actual courses offered and how these might apply to your actual job/career. You'll want to visit each school's profile to see details and then visit the schools.

In this case you'll pay more for the certificates in this area offered by a traditional, non-profit residential college: Central Michigan. American Public University tends to set prices based on the levels pre-approved for payment in military and government contractor circles.

You'll see a lot of variety in the type and number of courses offered by these schools online so compare each to see which (if any) relates to your career needs.

How about PMP accreditatio? That is as good if better isn't it?

Hi Dyan,

Thanks much for the input!

A college certificate or degree in project management (which can include logistics as one area)is different from a private vendor certification in project management. They both have value. In order to complete a private vendor certification you will need to take both courses and complete on the job project management tasks and take a private vendor certification exam. Both processes have value and meaning in the career world.

The Project Management Institute (PMI) offers several private non-collegiate certifications, including the PMP -- Project Management Professional. This credential is awarded to managers who show work background and experience, plus pass the private exam.

The International Project Management Association is another credentialing organization, which offers a four-level series of certificates to project managers worldwide. These certificates also require exams, work experience portfolios, and an interview.

All the Best Vicky

Logistics and supply chain Management is a complete package as compare to logistic management alone. VGBS is one of the famous institute in Pune area running courses like this. Even the career prospective there are huge opportunities.

Hello, I am enrolled at OSM (Open School of Management). They offer online courses for management (as far as I know, including logistics management). It's a new online school. I like it so far. The staff is really nice, and the courses I've been taken are on a high level yet understandably written. It is a certificate program. I have no experiences with other online schools that offer management. Check them out on their website. Hope I could help!
