Background of the Program

HITS has signed an MOU with the Logistics Sector Skill Council (LSC) to launch a BBA (Logistics) program. This program blends learning experiences, which will be a combination of conceptual learning in classrooms followed by a paid internship in industry. A specific logistics syllabus developed by the LSC shall be imparted to the students, which shall enhance their employability. There has been, so far, no formal educational program in the country to address the skill gap in the logistics sector. The MOU has been signed keeping in mind this gap and the emerging opportunity. The program is a blend of theory and hands-on learning through apprenticeship to enhance the logistics scope in India.
