MIT SCM COVID-19 Updates

MIT and the SCM program will offer a hybrid learning model in the fall, with a combination of in-person classroom instruction and online course options beginning September 1, 2020.

Learn more about MIT's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how SCM students have responded by helping find solutions to global supply chain and operations challenges.

The MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics' educational programs are key vehicles for moving leading-edge research beyond MIT’s laboratories to the global marketplace. This site focuses on CTL's internationally-recognized Supply Chain Management master's programs, which attract a diverse group of talented and motivated students from across the globe.

Our master's students work directly with researchers and industry experts on complex and challenging problems in all aspects of supply chain management. MIT SCM students graduate as thought leaders ready to engage in an international, highly competitive marketplace, and propel their classroom and laboratory learning straight into industry. This is partly why MIT is continually ranked among the top logistics and supply chain management educational programs in the US and internationally.

MIT's SCM master's curriculum emphasizes analytical problem solving, leadership, and communication skills, and includes courses in Analytical Methods, Logistics Systems, Database Analysis/Information Systems/System Technologies, Finance, Economics, Accounting, Technical Communication/Writing, Leading Global Teams, and more. Master's students complete a graduate research project (capstone or thesis), working closely with partner companies in diverse industries to devise solutions to real-world business challenges.

Every decision is the right one as long as it works for the family.

This story was intended to share perspectives on bringing families with children to Cambridge from abroad while studying at MIT.
