Top schools combine business and engineering for unique dual degree in Supply Chain Management
Cambridge, Massachusetts, Madrid and Zaragoza, Spain – Instituto de Empresa (IE) Business School has partnered with the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL) and the Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC) to launch a dual master’s degree program offering the opportunity to earn both an International MBA and a Master of Engineering in Logistics in 19 months.
Instituto de Empresa, a leading European business school, and the Centers at MIT and Zaragoza, with top-rated master’s programs in the rapidly growing field of supply chain management, created this dual degree to provide the international business community with leaders who can meet the challenges of globalization. To compete and grow, companies confront the complexity of product proliferation, offshore manufacturing and emerging markets. The schools’ unique blend of business and engineering faculty prepare managers with the general management know-how, technological expertise, and advanced analytical skills to face these challenges.
Students enrolled in the dual degree program will earn an International MBA at IE Business School in Madrid, and either a Master of Engineering in Logistics (MLOG) at the CTL in Cambridge, Massachusetts, or a Master of Engineering in Logistics & Supply Chain Management (ZLOG) at the ZLC in Zaragoza, Spain. The ZLOG degree is administered and managed under the MIT-Zaragoza International Logistics Program and is strongly linked with the MLOG program at MIT.
“Globalization has created the need for a new kind of business leader who has a sophisticated understanding of complex management issues and the ability to design and operate global networks that are constantly in flux. The unique resources available at these leading business and engineering schools will provide that essential understanding and expertise,” said Professor Yossi Sheffi, Director of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics.
“This key partnership is a source of great satisfaction,” said Santiago
