The Zaragoza Master of Engineering in Logistics (ZLOG), the full time masters program offered by a groundbreaking partnership between MIT and the Zaragoza Logistics Center in Spain, is oversubscribed months ahead of its start date this fall.

"We are overwhelmed by the global interest in this new program," said Dr. Jarrod Goentzel, executive director, MIT-Zaragoza International Logistics Program (ZLOG). "We have already tripled our target for applications with applicants from over 20 countries, indicating that supply chain management plays a critical role in globalization," he added.

The Zaragoza Logistics Center was founded by the Government of Aragon, the University of Zaragoza, and industry partners along with its strategic partner MIT. The center aims to become an internationally renowned centre of excellence for logistics research and education.

The ZLC is located in the city of Zaragoza, but will eventually be relocated to a purpose-built university building in the PLAZA Logistics Park on the outskirts of the city. PLAZA is a state-of-the-art logistics complex used as a distribution hub by leading companies such as Imaginarium and Zara. As such, the Park will provide a "living laboratory" for the ZLC's research and educational work. The new building is currently in the design stage.
