Online Logistics & Transportation Management Education at APU/AMU


Established in 1991, American Public University System (APU) consists of two online universities: American Public University (APU) and American Military University (AMU). In 1991, the American Military University is one of the first universities 100% online. AMU is designed to meet the specific educational needs of the military - a transient, working adults who need a variety of program offerings from traditional courses, to courses such as terrorism and military intelligence, which are not readily available in most institutions.

In 2002, after a decade of growth and service to thousands of students and hundreds of candidates, AMU expanded into American Public University System. The APU is designed to extend coverage of the system to better meet the needs of those interested in public service-related programs, such as criminal justice, public safety, national security and other adult students who seek to continue their studies through a robust curriculum online.

American Public University System is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, North Central Association and Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council. The transportation programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
