Missions, Goals, and History
The Transportation Institute provides a leading voice in education, research, and resources to the current and future leaders of transportation systems that integrate all modes—surface, water, and air. The executive transportation management master’s degree prepares leaders and managers to compete in an increasingly globalized market. As the transportation industry becomes more intermodal and interdependent, a strong cohort of leaders will influence the transportation, supply-chain, and logistics industries—and the Transportation Institute aims to educate those leaders, while creating a distinguished network of transportation professionals.
Intermodal transportation is the most comprehensive approach to addressing current and future transportation challenges. It moves people and goods efficiently, economically, safely, and in an environmentally benign manner by means of an integrated, seamless, ethical transportation system that uses the strengths of all modes and minimizes their weaknesses.
