An announcement has been made that the Malaysian government and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are set to offer a new research center.
This new education center will offer supply-chain education and will be located in Shah Alam which is outside of Kuala Lumpur. The Malaysia Institute of Supply Chain Innovation is set to be modeled from a program that is offered at M.I.T. and will be open to students in the spring of 2012.
The first degree available will be a master’s degree in supply chain management and logistics. Eventually a doctoral program will be instituted as well as professional courses for executives.
M.I.T. has a large international network of logistic research and education centers known as the Global Scale Network and the Malaysia site is the latest to join this group. Some of the other programs within this network are located in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Bogota and Zaragoza, Spain.
