This month, we thought it might be helpful to meet some current MLOG and ZLOG students describe their experiences in the program live and in person.

Hear from them how their first semester went, what a typical day is like, what they are doing during the break between semesters, and how the placement process works. They will also discuss what they have found to be most valuable about the program so far.

Megacities: the Supply Chain Frontier
