The MIT-Malaysia Masters of Science in Supply Chain Management (MSCM) is a rigorous 9+ month program of courses and hands-on research. Each student is required to write a masters thesis. MISI’s great strength, and one, which supports the MSCM program’s world class ranking for supply chain education, is it partnerships with industry. Companies are invited to submit thesis projects for consideration by the students. This is a great opportunity for the students to work with your supply chain professionals as they jointly tackle a real-world problem. The project team will be guided by the MISI faculty, who have deep experience in the relevant topic area.

What Companies Can Expect?

Typically companies that partner with MISI on the thesis project initiative would suggest projects from specific areas or challenges within their operations or industry, in which they would like to gain more insight. These suggested research topics will then be put forward to our master’s students, who will in turn, adopt them as their thesis project. The student would take 6 – 9 months to complete the project.

The results from these projects will be presented to the participating organization, who will typically use the insights gained from these projects, to facilitate business strategy formulation, or in fact, use the findings to initiate their own improvement project.
