Program earns top accolade for a second time from global ratings agency Eduniversal.
The MIT master’s program in supply chain management has been ranked as the world's No. 1 graduate business program in supply chain and logistics by Eduniversal, the Paris-based global rating agency for higher education. This is the second time the MIT master’s program has been ranked No. 1 by Eduniversal.
The 10-month master's in supply chain management program at MIT has been educating supply chain professionals for almost 20 years, and is the model for graduate programs in centers across MIT’s Global Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence (SCALE) Network. The program is currently offered at the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics in the United States, the Zaragoza Logistics Center in Spain, and the Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation in Malaysia. A variant certification, the graduate certificate in logistics and supply chain management, is offered in Latin America. Graduate programs in the newest SCALE centers — Luxembourg Center for Logistics and Ningbo Supply Chain Institute in China — will commence this fall.
Business professionals from around the globe enroll in the top-ranked program to hone their supply chain expertise and advance their careers. They learn the latest supply chain management methods, engage in cutting-edge research, and interact with industry through site visits, lectures from C-level executive speakers, and dozens of recruiting opportunities.
MIT SCALE graduates are in high demand in a wide range of industries. This year’s graduates have already accepted positions with leading firms such as Apple, Amazon, General Mills, General Motors, The Boston Consulting Group, McKinsey and Company, Converse, Deloitte, and more.
“A company’s ability to efficiently manage its supply chain has become a key competitive differentiator across the globe. Our MIT master’s in supply chain management program, which is consistently ranked as a world leader, is providing the supply chain talent that companies need to thrive in today’s highly demanding commercial environment,” says Yossi Sheffi, the Elisha Gray II Professor of Engineering Systems at MIT and director of the MIT Global SCALE Network.
