MIT also Named Number One in Engineering

May 31, 2007, CAMBRIDGE, MASS. - U.S.News & World Report has ranked the Massachusetts Institute of Technology first among graduate business programs in the area of logistics and supply chain management.  This is the fourth time in the past five years that MIT has claimed the top supply chain spot in the publication’s annual report on America’s best graduate schools.  The report also ranked MIT number one in Engineering.

One of the supply chain programs offered at MIT is the Master of Engineering in Logistics (MLOG) Program.  MLOG – a nine-month professional degree program at the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics – enrolls business professionals from around the globe and hones their supply chain expertise through challenging course work that includes a year-long leadership seminar; cutting edge research that results in a thesis; and industry interaction, which includes site visits, C-level executive speakers, and dozens of recruiting opportunities.
This dedicated industry interaction helps to explain why MLOG graduates are taking jobs as supply chain leaders in a wide variety of industries including consulting manufacturing, retail, logistics, distribution and software.  This year’s graduates have taken positions with leading firms such as Accenture, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, IBM, Intel, Oracle, Pepsi Bottling Group, and more.

The U.S.News & World Report survey is a result of a comprehensive evaluation of US colleges and universities.  The magazine regularly asks deans and senior faculty of business schools to nominate up to ten of the best programs in several specialties.
