A growing number of Universities and Colleges of Business are creating majors in Logistics and/or Supply Chain Management. The question becomes does this growing major present opportunities for Information System majors to better position themselves in the job market. Assuming this is true, how should IS faculty approach this opportunity at their specific university. This paper presents arguments for and against a Logistics minor and provides models to implement it based on a successful implementation at Georgia Southern University. In a sense, this paper provides a “how to” model for IS Faculty to create a beneficial curriculum opportunity to meet a growing niche market to benefit multiple university stakeholders.
