The Supply Chain Management Program (SCMr) leads to a Master of Engineering in Logistics degree that is designed to provide the global logistics industry with a new type of supply chain professional who is highly trained in both analytical problem solving and change management leadership. This 10-month, one-of-a-kind. professional degree program prepares graduates for logistics and supply chain management careers in manufacturing, distribution, retail, transportation, logistics, consulting, and software development organizations. It is designed for early career professionals in supply chain, operations, and industrial engineering, to step out of the workforce for a short amount of time, receive intense training in supply chain fundamentals and leadership skills, and then return to the workforce at a much higher level of responsibility.
The MIT SCMr Program is completed from August through May on the MIT campus in Cambridge. MA, USA. During that time, students take specialized classes taught by leading logistics and supply chain professionals in areas such as logistics systems, supply chain design, inventory planning, and transportation management. Students also take courses in leadership, business writing, public speaking, and strategy. During the month of January, students participate on teams with their peers from MIT's Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence (SCALE) Network centers in Spain, Malaysia, Luxembourg, China, and Latin America.
With its small, exclusive cohort, MIT SCMr gives you direct access to faculty members from across departments, disciplines, geographies, and industries. You will uncover new insights by using a variety of methodologies. Working together, you will solve challenging and complex problems that are not easily defined by a single domain or approach. Each student writes a master’s thesis based on a real-world project sponsored by one of CTL’s corporate members and travels to the international trade hubs in Panama for a supply chain education that spans the globe.
