Career Services

Since its inception, the MIT Supply Chain Management (SCM) program has graduated more than 500 supply chain professionals, who work around the globe for leading manufacturers, retailers, consultancies, and others. Our dedication to innovation in Supply Chain begins with our educational programs and corporate partnerships. We continue this commitment by actively recruiting students into industry-leading jobs. MIT SCM graduates join an esteemed group of alumni and forge deep connections with their cohorts during the 10-month program. Not only they make great friends and future colleagues, they leave with a life-pivoting experience and career launch pad.
