The MIT Supply Chain Bootcamp is an intense MIT educational experience specifically designed for our MicroMasters® community of learners.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the meaning of normal business practices and how we at MIT deliver our educational programs.

The Virtual MIT Supply Chain Bootcamp is a NEW online education certificate built upon the traditional, on-campus MIT Supply Chain Bootcamp structure but with the added flexibility of online, synchronous learning that is more accessible to our global audience.

This program's curriculum was developed to explore the challenges and innovations that are reshaping the future of supply chains. Participants will take a critical look at existing supply chains and will learn strategies to create value and overcome potential vulnerabilities.

Participants will leave with the necessary knowledge and strategic vision needed to excel in the continuously changing landscape of supply chain management.

** The only prerequisite to apply to this program is to have enrolled in at least one course of the MITx MicroMasters® in Supply Chain Management program. It is expected that applicants have some professional experience and/or educational background in supply chain management. The completion of one or more courses from the MicroMasters program will be positively valued in the application.

Some topics we will explore

  • Digital transformation
  • E-commerce & Omnichannel
  • Risk & Resilience
  • Sustainability

Key learning objectives

  • Learn how to drive excellence in your supply chain
  • Identify the value and risks of digitalization
  • Understand how e-customers’ demands and preferences are changing supply chains
  • Prepare your supply chain to be ready to deal with unexpected events and quickly adapt to a changing business context
  • Create a supply chain sustainability strategy

The main objective of these sessions is to introduce participants to relevant supply chain topics, key concepts, best practices, and innovative ideas needed for successful supply chain management.

In order to achieve these learning objectives, we have structured each day with four types of sessions:  learning, applying, discussing, and connecting. 

Participants will learn new concepts and approaches by attending lectures taught by MIT researchers. They will apply those learnings through interactive activities and discuss the topic and its implications to current and future supply chains with industry leaders. Finally, participants will connect, by sharing their own experiences, and learn from peers in the networking session at the end of the day.

What to expect

Mornings: Learn about the most up-to-date supply chain developments from MIT researchers, face realistic business scenarios, make informed decisions through interactive activities and case studies, and engage in topical discussions with peers through group activities

Afternoons: Interact with industry experts through live interviews and network with your peers and MIT CTL researchers during the afternoon gathering.

The virtual MIT Supply Chain Bootcamp will be delivered online daily for four days. All sessions will be live and taught by the same MIT CTL faculty who teach in our on-campus program. Just like our other programs, this program offers, and requires, a high level of participant engagement through research lectures, case studies, and interviews with experts.

Participants will have direct access to the MIT CTL faculty throughout the program, engage in dynamic group discussions, and network among their peer community.


Who should attend

This NEW program is designed for our MicroMasters® community of learners and practitioners at any level of seniority within their organization.

Participants could be from any industry, but the content is geared towards individuals with experience in supply chain management, transportation, and logistics-related roles.

Job functions and roles may include:

  • General manager, mid-level and senior-level
  • Responsible for a business unit
  • Strategic sourcing manager
  • Purchasing manager
  • Operations manager
  • Omnichannel manager
  • Logistics manager
