MIT Graduate Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (GCLOG)

The MIT Graduate Certificate in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (GCLOG) is an elite academic program from the MIT Global Supply Chain And Logistics Excellence (SCALE) network, geared towards outstanding graduate students from Latin America. As a certificate, the GCLOG has a smaller time and tuition footprint than the MIT SCALE degree-granting programs and is a perfect educational complement for those students currently pursuing a master program in their home universities. The GCLOG is taught 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, one of the world's most respected universities in the world, with a proven record in supply chain management and logistics. We are convinced that if admitted, the participants will have a life experience in our program.


The GCLOG affords outstanding students from Latin America the opportunity to complement their ongoing education in their home universities with a Certificate from MIT. "The GCLOG is a truly unique world-class experience that supports the pathway to success in our professional careers" says former GCLOG 2016, Andrea Barreto - Mexico (Sr. Product Manager at "Best in class instructors, outstanding classmates and valuable debates at MIT is what I found in this program. It definitely was a milestone not only in my career but in my life" says former GCLOG 2016, Roberto Sugiyama - Brazil (SCM Manager at Bayer).

GCLOG students learn from world class 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. Read testimonials from our alumni.
