Hello there,

As you have completed MBA in Supply Chain Management and wish to pursue course in Logistic Management, I will suggest you to pick short term diploma or certificate courses in USA. These courses could be of 3months or 6months or 9months. You could further finds certificate courses of 9m from recognised university which offer OPT (Optional Practical Training) in USA. OPT will provide you one year to find job in USA and further you could apply for H1 visa which is for 3 years. You will also have option to apply for USA green card.

These courses are of reasoanable cost and you will have to shell out approx INR 7 to INR 9 lacs for a 9month certificate program which will include tuition accommodation and living expenses. However, there are limited USA Universities which offer OPT for their certificate courses and necessary research is required.

Regards,

Hi, MS in Supply Chain and Logistics is available at University of Wollongong, Dubai campus, where the program is delivered in the evening and during the day the students can work in Logistics and Supply chain related jobs. Dubai is the hub of Logistics activity with one of the largest airports and with one of the largest Ports in Asia offerring excellent scope for students to work and study at the same time. The program fees is also very affordable at about 2 lakhs per semester.
