Course Format


Log21 is structured as a one-week course running from a Sunday evening welcome dinner to a mid-day Friday feedback session.  In this unique course, participants engage in candid exchanges regarding how to improve the art and practice of modern logistics from a 21st-century perspective. This highly interactive program offers an intensive, pragmatic learning experience, where participants explore theory and practice in areas such as technology insertion, life-cycle design, public/private partnerships, and contract negotiations.  The participants will be challenged by expert faculty and guest speakers to:

  • Work in a number of different learning modalities, including classroom and group work;
  • Interact with their peers both in and out of the classroom; and
  • Establish networks for ongoing exchange of ideas and practice.

Many of the logistics topics covered are similar to those in our other executive education courses; however, to better focus the curriculum to an early career audience, we have included such topics as a DoD Budget Primer, an Introduction to Contracting, and a greater emphasis on leadership.
