MIT - Malaysia Supply Chain Management Master's
Shah Alam, Malaysia

By location and design, the Master of Science Degree in Supply Chain Management from the Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation offers a unique research and educational environment for students. A strong partnership between academia, industry, and government has been fostered to create and disseminate innovative supply chain knowledge.

  • DYNAMIC LOCATION. Asia and the ASEAN region is on the verge of reaching its economic potential with supply chain management shaping up to take center stage. Most companies in the region, be they global, multinational, regional or local, are in the midst of re-engineering their procurement and supply chain functions. For example, Schlumberger has employed MISI alumni at its global procurement services hub in Kuala Lumpur since opening the facility.
  • DIVERSE STUDENT BODY. Our class sizes are small, and diverse, representing a wide range of Asian countries, with over 50% females.
  • INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE. Our students get maximum exposure to companies in the Asia region and often go on to work in Asia after graduation.
  • UNIQUE CHALLENGES. Where else can you find supply chains that have to contend with coups, piracy, tsunamis, and elephant transportation while also having the most sophisticated and largest container ports in the world?
  • KUALA LUMPUR. Kuala Lumpur (or "KL") is one of the world's greatest megacities and offers up numerous opportunities and challenges for supply chain operations as the majority of the world's growing population will move towards these great global cities by 2030. KL is an extremely vibrant city with a rich culture, low cost of living, and wonderfully warm weather all year long.
  • TRAVEL. KL's prime location means that travel to other Asian countries in the region is fast, quick, and very cheap with some of the world's most beautiful beaches (Langkawai, Phuket, Ko Samui, Bali), historic sites (Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Ayutthaya in Thailand, Vietnam), and cities (Bangkok, Singapore, Yangon, HCM City, Jakarta, Shanghai) just a short trip away.
  • HI-TECH INDUSTRIES. Malaysia is the sourcing choice for many hi-tech supply chains including Dell, Intel, Seagate, and more. Our students have opportunities to visit manufacturers in Malaysia to gain an understanding offshoring approaches from the supplier side.
