Supply Chain Management Graduate Admissions


The SCMr (Residential) program is optimized for early-career supply chain and operations professionals who wish to step out of the workforce for a short amount of time, receive intense training, and re-enter the workforce at a much higher level of responsibility and a higher salary. 

The MIT supply chain management acceptance process requires the following:

  • A minimum of two years of relevant post-bachelor's professional work experience is required (students who enter with 3 to 7 years of work experience are in the best position to gain from the SCMr program and also contribute the most to class discussions).
  • Applicants are expected to have college-level training in analytical thinking
  • Applicants should demonstrate training in college-level calculus, probability, and statistics


All applications and supporting materials must be submitted by following deadlines. The Admission's Committee will not evaluate incomplete applications.

The online application for 2020-21 academic year is open.

Most successfully admitted applicants achieve or surpass the following scores: V75%, Q75%, AW50%.
