The Master’s Programme of MIT Global SCALE (Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence) Network has been ranked as the world's leading graduate business programme in supply chain and logistics by Eduniversal.

The Paris-based global rating agency for higher education ranked the MIT SCALE master’s programme as number one for the third time.              

The SCALE network of supply chain management research and education includes centers in Spain, Luxembourg, Colombia, Malaysia, and China, in addition to MIT.

Its educational offerings are based on MIT’s 10-month master's in supply chain management programme, which has been educating supply chain professionals for over 20 years.

Business professionals from around the globe enroll in the top-ranked programmes offered by the SCALE network 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. In January every year all students from across the global network convene at MIT for an intensive month-long course.

SCALE Network graduates are in high demand in a wide range of industries. This year’s graduates have already accepted positions with leading firms such as Amazon, Apple, Tesla, Cummins, Samsung, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Roche, Maersk, and more.


“A company’s ability to efficiently manage its supply chain has become a key competitive differentiator across the globe. Our 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,” said Yossi Sheffi, the Elisha Gray II Professor of Engineering Systems at MIT and director of the MIT Global SCALE Network.

“We are delighted to be ranked number one in the world for the third year in a row.”

In addition to its 10-month programme, MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics also offers a MicroMasters credential in supply chain management. Through five online courses and a capstone exam, learners get access to an advanced, professional, graduate-level foundation in supply chain management comparable to one semester’s worth of coursework at MIT with the same faculty members. 

The programme offers a unique path to education at MIT and across the SCALE network, whereby MicroMasters certificate holders have the opportunity to apply to MIT, as well as the Spain and Malaysia centers, to complete a Master’s degree in only five months.
