The MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics moves leading-edge research from MIT’s labs to the global marketplace through its educational programs. 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.
