Business Leadership Building, Room 206
The doctoral and master’s degree programs administered by the Department of Marketing and Logistics at the University of North Texas give you the tools to be successful in your current career or to transition into a new one.
We offer course work leading to a Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Logistics and Supply Chain Management or a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Business with a concentration in Logistics Systems.
Garter Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company, recently ranked our M.B.A program among the top 25 programs in the nation. Its study evaluated our program’s overall industry value, scope and size.
The M.B.A. curriculum teaches you how leading executives obtain a competitive advantage by aligning key business processes with end-user requirements. While pursuing the degree, you:
We draw on related and supporting courses ranging from computer information systems and economics to decision sciences and finance.
In addition to earning your M.B.A., you qualify for professional certification in transportation and logistics (CTL) from the American Society of Transportation and Logistics. Many of our students also apply for the graduate certificate in logistics and supply chain management.
The doctoral concentration in Logistics Systems blends business, logistics, supply chain, public policy and engineering prepares you for faculty positions and high-impact positions within industry.
The curriculum provides the foundation to be successful in an academic career or a career as a professional researcher analyzing logistics and supply chain management. You receive a thorough understanding of theory, methods and modeling techniques that are key tools for success in higher-level teaching and academic research.
This approach also helps lay a strong foundation for publishing success before you graduate. Students are mentored by faculty members who are well published.
The doctoral program represents UNT’s investment in the College of Business and the Complex Logistics Systems research cluster. Logistics is a key research area at UNT.
Our faculty members are outstanding professors and global leaders. Because of their research efforts, the logistics program ranks as the world’s fifth best program for supply chain and logistics research productivity by the International Journal of Physical Distribution and Logistics Management. Faculty research examines:
Faculty members also routinely interact with major corporations through their research and executive development programs. Those corporations include PepsiCo Inc., Verizon, Hillwood Investment Properties, J.C. Penney Co., Lockheed Martin and organizations such as the U.S. Department of Defense.
The College of Business is accredited by AACSB International — the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (777 South Harbour Island Blvd., Suite 750; Tampa, Fla. 33602; telephone 813-769-6500). This accreditation means we meet or exceed strict academic standards for excellence in education.
The Business Leadership Building reflects a commitment to preparing future business leaders and promotes interaction among students, faculty and industry leaders. The facility — which has Gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification for sustainability — contains 24 classrooms, team study rooms and a state-of-the-art computer lab. This building distinguishes us as a leader in business education.

Satisfying these criteria does not guarantee admission to the doctoral program. All documents undergo a holistic review process, and the Director of Ph.D. Programs and Research notifies candidates about program admission.
For graduate school requirements and possible exceptions, visit the Graduate School website or the catalog. More information about the program’s admission requirements is available by contacting a graduate advisor in the College of Business.
Your program’s content depends on your academic background. Students without undergraduate business degrees generally are required to complete 18 semester hours of background courses. However, your undergraduate degree course work will be evaluated on an individual basis.
Depending on a student’s academic record, you can be admitted into the Ph.D. program directly from an undergraduate program. Students should have some work experience, but admission is based on a holistic review by the doctoral committee. The decision requires completing a master’s degree while completing the Ph.D. program. The track may be appropriate for selected, highly qualified students or students sponsored by organizations or nations that do not have a master’s degree requirement for a Ph.D. The requirements are:
The Dallas-Fort Worth region offers numerous internship opportunities. Students with logistics internships possess a competitive advantage during the job search process. Most of our students receive and accept job offers while completing their internship.
Our department frequently employs M.B.A. students as graduate assistants. If selected, you will assist with administrative, teaching or research tasks. These positions provide employment for 10 to 20 hours per week. An outof- state tuition waiver may be granted for a 20-hour-perweek position. Graduate assistants must enroll in at least 9 credit hours per semester. More information about financial assistance is available on the Financial Aid website or the Graduate School site.
