Abstract Companies worldwide have been turning to logistics and supply chain management to give them a distinctive edge. The success stories of Wal-Mart, Toyota, 7-Eleven, and Dell are but a few of the many celebrated exemplars of the contributions logistics and supply chain management makes in helping organizations to achieve superior performance. As a cradle for honing logistics and supply chain management talents, universities play a significant role in moulding future logistics and supply chain management professionals to face the evolving challenges and drive changes in industry. As logistics and supply chain programs continue to evolve in response to industry demand, two of the pertinent questions in this regard are: how do universities around the world organize their degree offerings to meet the growing demand for logistics and supply chain professionals? What do universities see as the requisite blend of domain knowledge essential for supply chain and logistics graduates to meet industry expectations? This paper examines the postgraduate logistics and supply chain degree programs offered by universities around the world.
