MIT-Ningbo Supply Chain Management Program


Ningbo, China

The Ningbo Supply Chain Innovation Institute China (NSCIIC) is an independent, stand-alone, degree-granting academic institution established under Chinese law by the government of Ningbo, China, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) in partnership for supply chain education and research. NSCIIC aims to become an international center of excellence for research and education in Logistics and Supply Chain Management that actively collaborates with industry and the public sector to develop and disseminate knowledge. The center will provide graduate education, and the first master's students will come in the fall of 2017. The master's degree will be modeled after the MIT Supply Chain Management Program, which grants the Master of Engineering in Logistics degree. There are also plans for a doctoral degree as well as a portfolio of professional courses for executives, to reinforce NSCIIC's connections with corporate partners. We welcome interested companies and agencies to contact us for potential collaboration.
