MSCMx has been suspended for the academic year 2021/2022
Online + Full Time
In addition to the 10 month full-time Master of Supply Chain management (MSCM) program, MISI offer a Blended MSCM (MSCMx) Program. This program is for students who have successfully completed all five MITx on-line courses in Supply Chain Management and the comprehensive examination.
WHAT SETS THE MSCMx PROGRAM APART
- MSCMx students will receive the identical degree as full-time students in the regular MSCM program (Degree from MISI and certificate from MIT)
- MSCMx students will receive 10 credit units (out of the 48 credit units required for the MSCM degree at MISI) for the 5 MITx courses they have taken on-line
- MSCMx students will receive a 33% discount on the standard MSCM fees
- MSCMx students will be eligible for financial aid (scholarships or deferred fees) similar to other MISI students
- MSCMx students can participate in MISI’s career placement program
- The MSCMx program begins at MIT with SCALE Connect
MSCMx students will be required to complete another 38 credit units of course work at MISI in order to obtain their MSCM degree. This is in addition to the 10 credit units they obtain for their successful completion of the 5 MITx on-line courses.
12 of the 38 credit units will be for a thesis project. 2 to 3 students may work together on a thesis which may be proposed and sponsored by a company. The thesis effort will run from November to May.
MSCMx students will be required to take courses on some weekends(Saturday and Sunday) at MISI as well as the weekday and some evening courses along with the MSCM students in order to obtain the remaining 26 credits.

Throughout the month of January, MISI students will travel to MIT in Cambridge Massachusetts USA to participate in the SCALE Connect. This is a unique MIT semester, which gives students the freedom to choose from a diversity of programs that include, exercises and simulation games, intensive interaction with industry, involving presentations by business experts, poster sessions, academic lectures and seminars.
A number of supply chain experts offer seminars to provide a practical perspective on real-world and leadership issues. There are also a number of site visits with prominent industry leaders in order to view systems and logistics disciplines.
World-class leaders in the field of Supply Chain Management will give academic lectures and seminars to students.
All students from within the MIT network will now be at the culmination of a competition that was initially launched in September. During this time period all Global SCALE network students were remotely working in teams in a Supply Chain Challenge simulation game. Now at MIT the team members from, Massachusetts USA, Columbia, Spain, Luxembourg, China and Malaysia meet face to face, at the final stage of the competition where they have been managing an international supply chain in a virtual marketplace.
Please note: Traveling to MIT for the purpose of the SCALE Connect is subject to the student obtaining the necessary US visa as required. While it is the student’s responsibility to obtain the visa, MISI will assist by providing supporting documentation.
What our students have to say
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
