MIT Graduate Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management
The MIT Graduate Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (GCLOG) is an elite program designed for outstanding students from Latin America. As a certificate, the GCLOG has a smaller time and tuition footprint than the MIT Global Scale Network degree-granting programs. At the same time, it is designed and taught by MIT instructors and includes seminars hosted at the MIT campus. The GCLOG maintains the rigor and prestige of MIT with a proven record of success in supply chain management and logistics studies.
The GCLOG affords outstanding students from Latin America the opportunity to complement their ongoing education in their home countries with a Certificate from MIT. "The GCLOG is a truly unique program," says former Director, Dr. Roberto Perez-Franco. "I think of it as the equivalent of a concentration that masters students from Latin America can take at MIT." The GCLOG students learn from MIT instructors and enjoy the MIT experience as part of the MIT SCALE cohort, without much disruption to their ongoing masters, family, and work commitments, and without breaking the bank.
