MIT Zaragoza PhD Program in Logistics and Supply Chain Management

ZLC - Zaragoza Logistics Center

Descripción

The main aim of the PhD Program on Logistics and Supply Chain Management is to develop outstanding scholars who will pursue distinguished careers in research and education. Students work intensively with our faculty to create new knowledge in fields of interest such as supply chain coordination, inventory management, supply chain finance, supply chain risk management and security, and supply chain innovation.

First and second year PhD students typically complete PhD level courses offered by the MIT-Zaragoza International Logistics Program, such as probability and stochastic processes, empirical methods, integer and dynamic programming, inventory management and game theory. Second year PhD students spend a semester at MIT and have the opportunity of studying at other leading business and engineering schools. The dissertation typically requires two more years to complete. At the end of second year, students must pass a comprehensive qualifying exam, when the student becomes a candidate for the PhD and focuses on dissertation research.

Temario

PhD students complete the necessary coursework during the first two years. Specifically, during the first year, students take doctoral level courses offered at ZLC, while they typically spend the second year at MIT.
Some examples to such courses are probability and stochastic processes, empirical methods, integer and dynamic programming, inventory management and game theory. Each student is required to take and pass the qualification exam at the beginning of the third academic year in order to become PhD Candidates.
They are also expected to submit a proposal for the dissertation during the fifth semester.
The last two years are dedicated to research, and students are expected to finish their dissertation work by the end of the fourth academic year.
Depending on the particular situation and subject to approval from the PhD Director and the Advisor, students might be given the opportunity to have short research stays at other leading schools.
