Management College and Florida Tech established a cooperative degree program that combines instruction received during a 16-week Army logistics class with
graduate classes at Florida Tech. The entire program is completed at Fort Lee. The cooperative master’s program is for military officers, federal
government executives and foreign military officers.             Florida Tech, through the
University College Extended Studies Division, offers graduate degree and certificate programs at 10 U.S. sites in five states, including a well-established
distance learning program. Degrees have been awarded to candidates representing the military services, federal and local government, and a wide variety of
business and industry sectors.             For more information contact Terry Raney at (804)
