MIT  E40 - 364

Today’s companies are realizing the importance of the supply chain as a revenue generator — it's not just a cost of doing business. In order to remain competitive in the global marketplace, senior executives must completely transform their business approach and conventional supply chain practices, and embrace new capabilities that drive more value. How can you leverage the latest supply chain tools, practices and capabilities to ensure that your company is poised to adapt in this rapidly changing environment and not be left behind? You can start by learning from the best at MIT.

The MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) invites you to attend its industry-leading executive education program Supply Chain Management: Driving Strategic Advantage.

Taught by distinguished MIT faculty and researchers, this executive course is a fast-paced mix of simulations, case studies, MIT CTL research, and thought-provoking, interactive class sessions.

There has never been a better time to hone your supply chain management skills and develop new ones. Join us at MIT CTL and step up to the future of supply chain.

Where is the course being held?

The course will be held on the MIT campus near Kendall Square. On Tuesday, June 9, check-in and the first lecture will be held on the third floor of the Tang Center, building E51, room 335. Although the physical address of the Tang Center is 70 Memorial Drive, the entrance is located at the rear of the building on the corner of Wadsworth and Amherst Streets. The remainder of the course will be held at 1 Amherst St., 3rd floor (bldg E40, room 364). You can find these building locations by clicking on "Where is E40" at the top of the page or on the Campus Map. MIT building numbering system is somewhat of a mystery; E40 is directly across Amherst St. from E51.

Please note: Wadsworth Street is closed between Memorial Drive and Amherst St. due to a major building project.

When does the course officially begin and end?

Course check-in and informal networking will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 9. We will adjourn at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Friday, June 12.

 When booking your return flight, take into consideration the following recommendations for travel time and security checks at Logan: allow two hours for a domestic flight and three hours for an international flight.

Are accommodations provided?
No, each person is responsible for his/her own accommodations.

Where should I stay?
Guests are responsible for their own hotel accommodations. We do not have a block of rooms reserved. However, the hotel property most conveniently located to the campus is:

Boston Marriott Cambridge

Two Cambridge Center, 50 Broadway

Cambridge, MA 02142 USA

617-494-6600

For additional accommodation listings, please see Visiting MIT; however, please note that the room rates do not vary greatly for those hotel properties in proximity to MIT.

Where is the nearest airport?
Boston's Logan International Airport.

What is the best way to travel from the airport to the course?
To get to MIT from the airport, we strongly suggest taking a cab. The trip will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, and the fare is roughly $35. The cab fare from Logan is always a bit more than the return, because a surcharge at the airport and a tunnel toll add approximately $5 to the total fare.

If you live locally and prefer public transportation, take the MBTA Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop. We are a short three block walk from the T.

What is the best way to travel to the airport?
We suggest taking a cab. There are two cab stands - one on either side of the Marriott, on Broadway or on Main Street, both a short walk from E51. This is the most efficient means with regard to time. The MBTA Silver Line is an option, but will add perhaps 40 minutes.

Should I rent a car?
We do not recommend renting a car. The expense on top of poorly marked streets and lack of available parking makes having a car more of a nuisance than a convenience.

If I drive, how do I get there and where can I park?
If you are renting a car or will be driving, MapQuest and Google Map offer excellent mapping services to get you from your doorstep to MIT.

The nearest self-parking garage is The Green Garage, adjacent to the Cambridge Marriott (50 Broadway). Rates are as follows:

  •  3-10 hrs, $36
  • 10-24 hrs, $40

This garage is not owned or operated by the Marriott.

What should I wear?
Appropriate attire is business casual; no ties or suit coats are necessary.

What if I have a dietary restriction or allergy?
If you have a dietary restriction or allergy, please email MIT CTL Events Coordinator, Nancy Martin, nlmartin@mit.edu to let her know.

What is the payment/cancellation policy?

  • Payment is due upon receipt of invoice.
  • Payment can be made on-line using an American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa credit card. Complete payment information and options will be included on the invoice.
  • All cancellations must be made in writing to nlmartin@mit.edu.
  • A full refund will be granted up to 30 days prior to the start of the program.
  • Cancellations made 15-30 days prior to the program will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee.
  • Cancellations received 14 days or fewer before the program will not receive a refund.
