The Southern Center for Logistics and Intermodal Transportation

The Southern Center for Logistics and Intermodal Transportation is housed in Georgia Southern University’s Parker College of Business. Created in 1992 at the request of area industry leaders, the Center serves as a bridge between the logistics-related resources of the University and the business community engaged in logistics activities.

The Center’s activities focus on the rapidly growing supply chain operations, especially areas of logistics and intermodal distribution. As part of the Department of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, the Center accesses a wealth of knowledge, skills, and abilities in logistics and supply chain management via a substantial group of faculty, hundreds of undergraduate majors, and cohorts of doctoral students.

If your company is considering a research project in the area of supply chain management, forecasting, performance measurement, intermodal transportation, or sourcing, we encourage you to consider our Center. We have the resources and expertise to provide you and your organization quality results, with a reasonable investment of time and funds.

Center for Sales Excellence

The Center for Sales Excellence was established to support and promote our students in pursuit of Sales and Sales Management careers. The Center is housed within the Parker College of Business, serving business majors through a BBA in Marketing with an Emphasis in Sales and Sales Management. Through the activities of the Center, students gain experience with sales role-play in our three-room lab, and many go on to compete at the national level in competitions. The Center also works to bring sales students together with many companies who are looking for talent.

 Center for Retail Studies

The Center for Retail Studies is located in the Parker College of Business and is directed by the Department of Marketing. Students interested in retail can major with a BBA in Marketing while having a concentration in Retail Store Management or Fashion Merchandising. The Center aims to merge the gap between academia and practice by exposing students to national conferences and guest speakers in the retail industry. Students annually attend the National Retail Foundation’s “Big Show” in New York City and the Shop.Org Annual Summit. In addition, the Center helps facilitate retail internships and career opportunities available to students by hosting guest speakers of retail companies on campus and by assisting retailers’ involvement with Georgia Southern University’s career fair.
