About the Program
MIT’s SCM master’s program is designed for early-career professionals who want to return to school to receive practical, specialized training necessary to lead and innovate in the supply chain and logistics field across all industries.
The curriculum emphasizes analytical training, problem-solving frameworks, leadership development, and executive communication skills. Students partner with industry sponsors and MIT researchers/faculty to solve real-world business problems through thesis/capstone research projects.
Program Format and Schedule
The 10-month residential SCM program runs August-May. Strong applicants have 3-7 years of relevant professional work experience, strong quantitative and analytical skills, and proven leadership experience. International graduates of the residential program qualify for up to 36 months of US work authorization with OPT/STEM extension.
Accepted students choose between a Master of Applied Science or Master of Engineering in Supply Chain Management, and may focus on topics areas such as humanitarian response, sustainability, security, or policy.
A blended/hybrid option allows non-traditional students who complete MIT’s online MicroMaster’s Credential in SCM to enter the master’s program in January and graduate after 5 months on campus.
