Alumni Benefits

Graduates of MIT SCALE programs join an elite network of talented supply chain leaders working at top companies across all industries, all around the world.

Alumni of most SCALE programs enjoy Associate or Affiliate membership in the MIT Alumni Association, in addition to the alumni benefits granted by the University or Center that awarded their degree or diploma. Scroll down for specific alumni benefits by Center.

SCALE Credentials

Alumni of SCALE master's programs must take care in citing and referring to their credentials on CVs, public profiles (LinkedIn, etc), and other materials. It is especially important, as a matter of academic, professional, and personal integrity, to accurately identify both the institution that granted your degree, and the nature and source of the SCALE certificate. Keep in mind:
 

  • The SCALE Network does not award degrees or diplomas
  • SCALE certificates are awarded by the MIT SCALE Network, not by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 

Need Transcripts or a Replacement Certificate?

  • To request transcripts, contact the University or center that awarded your degree or diploma.
  • To request a replacement for a lost SCALE Certificate, email us at scale@mit.edu. Include your full name, your program and center, and the year you graduated. 

Secure Digital Certificates

In 2020 the SCALE Network began offering secure digital certificates to graduates of SCALE master's programs, in addition to traditional printed certificates. Secure digital digital certificates, issued on blockchain, provide a SCALE credential that’s easy to retrieve, share, and verify.
