The MIT Global Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence(SCALE) Network is an international alliance of leading-edge research and education centers, dedicated to the development and dissemination of global innovation in supply chain and logistics.
Supply Chain Research and Education on a Global Scale
expand MIT CTL’s reach for both education and research
create local supply chain management human capital and expertise in different regions of the world
open up new opportunities for innovation
develop new educational models and paradigms
create a worldwide network of executives, alumni and students who got educated or trained by MIT or with MIT material and influence.
It is designed and operated as a balanced network where each center contributes resources to conduct joint research, administers educational programs, and works with corporate sponsors.They are not meant to be MIT outposts but instead are structured with 10 - 20 year contracts where local expertise is hired, grown and developed.
The MIT Global SCALE Network allows faculty, researchers, students, and affiliated companies from all four centers to pool their expertise and collaborate on projects that will create supply chain and logistics innovations with global applications, and help companies to compete in an increasingly complex business environment.
