MIT Global SCALE Latin America logoAs part of the educational agenda for the SCALE network for Latin America, we offer the MIT Graduate Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (GCLOG). The GCLOG is an elite academic program from the SCALE network geared towards outstanding graduate students from Latin America. As a certificate, the GCLOG is a perfect educational complement for those students currently pursuing a master program in their home Latin American universities. The GCLOG is taught at the MIT campus, by instructors from the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL), who are considered the world's foremost thinkers in the field of Supply Chain Management and related fields. The GCLOG carries with it the prestige of MIT with a proven record in supply chain management and logistics. We are convinced that if admitted, the participants will have a life-changing experience in our program. For more information visit our website
