    Description

    Given the rising competitive conditions in Logistics sector, our department prepares its students for the highly challenging business life through improving their analytical thinking and problem solving skills.

    In the philosophical sense, Logistics means making a promise and fulfilling this promise. Logistics is the science of sytematic, purposeful and logical movement of goods and services. Logistics is an important philosophy and instrument in the management and control of time and place that creates sensitivity in all material and nonmaterial transactions and exchanges.

    Ömer Baybars Tek

    Department of International Logistics Management was founded in 2009 under the framework of Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences. The Head of International Logistics Management Department, Prof.Dr.Ömer Baybars Tek is one of the three authors in Turkey who wrote the first high quality textbook in Logistics. On 1985 with Ömer Z.Asici he coauthored a book titled Fiziksel Dagitim Yönetimi. Between the years 1969 and 1971, Dr. Ömer Baybars Tek has also been the student and follower of world-wide known scholar Dr. Donald J. Bowersox, who is one of the forefathers of Logistics and also the Former Vice Dean of Michigan State University, the Eli Broad College of Business. Dr.Tek taught Physical Distribution classes between 1971 and 1987. Further, Dr.Tek has taught several courses including Consumer Behavior and Retail Management at the Department of Supply Chain Management, the Eli Broad College of Business in the USA between the years of 2001 and 2002.

    Since the 1980s when Customer Oriented Marketing Approach was becoming widespread in national and global arena, Logistics has gained much more significance. Based on these developments, Department of International Logistics Management aims to equip its students with two foreign languages as part of the general university policy, and managerial skills that encompass flexibility, interdisciplinary approach and creative thinking.

    Given the rising competitive conditions in Logistics sector, our department prepares its students for the highly challenging business life through improving their analytical thinking and problem solving skills.

    The language of instruction of the Department of International Logistics Management is English.

    Career Opportunities in Logistics

    What kind of career and job opportunities does the Department of International Logistics Management offer its students?

    Due to the nature of Logistics, this sector requires human resources from all levels. This necessity is becoming much more evident in emerging economies such as the Turkish economy. The 10th International Transportation Forum with the theme “The Target 2023” held in Turkey between the date of September 27 and October 1, 2009 obviously brought out the need of a large demand for human resources in different levels in the near future.

    The graduates of Department of International Logistics Management will be able to work in various career areas. These diverse fields are listed below:

    • Manufacturing, wholesaler and retailer firms
    • Supermarkets, Hypermarkets and Chain Stores
    • International and Multinational Companies
    • Distribution firms
    • Purchasing and Logistics departments of large scaled companies
    • Exporting firms
    • Importing firms
    • Free Zones
    • Modern warehouses
    • Pipeline Distribution companies
    • Cargo and courier firms
    • Land, air and maritime transportation firms
    • Charter organizations
    • Cruise businesses
    • Intercity and International Bus Companies
    • National and International Logistics firms
    • Air and sea ports
    • Railway companies
    • Marina sector
    • The Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Tourism and any other related public institutions
    • Modern Logistics Villages
    • Disaster Logistics
    • Non Profit Organizations and NGOs
    • And all branches of business

    As can be seen from the list above, Department of International Logistics Management offers a wide array of career opportunities for our future graduates.

    The reason why there are plenty of career opportunities and job positions for Logistics graduates is as follows; First, the Logistics sector is a rapidly growing area. Second, there is a lack of skilled and well-qualified human resources in this sector. Third, besides English, the second foreign language (German, French, Russian) learning opportunity provided by the Department of International Logistics Management will be the extra advantage. Fourth, the fact that the number of schools offering Logistics as an undergraduate degree in Turkey is limited is another advantage. Given these facts, Logistics will be a nich area for our graduates to find qualified jobs both in our country and abroad.
