Q. Why Choose the MIT Zaragoza Master of Engineering in Logistics and Supply Chain Management over a standard MBA?A. If you are looking for a more focused alternative to the standard MBA, the ZLOG Program provides a gateway to a successful career in the dynamic and growing field of supply chain management. The main reasons include the following:
Very High ROI
The intensive ZLOG program takes just 10 months. Compared to the standard 2-year MBA, ZLOG students pay much less in total tuition and it costs them much less than one year's salary. More importantly, as demand for experts in supply chain management grows, so do the salaries. See the ZLOG Placement Statistics.
The ZLOG Program builds upon the graduate business program in supply chain management at MIT, which has consistently been ranked #1 by US News and World Report. Ten months of challenging coursework, cutting edge research, and industry interaction provide ZLOG graduates with the problem solving and leadership skills that companies seek in an increasingly complex and dynamic marketplace. The program is taught in English by an international faculty, trained at the world’s leading universities.
The MIT Scale Network programs collaborate to provide corporate recruitment events, company presentations and interview sessions throughout the academic year. During an intensive three-week period in January, ZLOG students participate in an international exchange with students from MIT Scale Network (SCM in US and MISI in Malaysia). ZLOG students not only have access to the resources of MIT career services, but also to the MIT Online Libraries and alumni network which stretches around the globe and across all industries.
Small Class Size
Each year, the ZLOG Program opens admission for a select group of international students to join the state-of-the-art industrial and academic setting that is ZLC. The small student to professor ratio creates a superb environment for interaction with professors and fellow students.
Generating Leaders in a Growing Field
The ZLOG degree is simply the best program in Europe for professionals who want to shape the way that companies are designing, managing, and running their global supply chains. But don't take our word for it. View some testimonials and contact ZLOG students and alumni to see for yourself.
Q. Is the ZLOG offered as a distance learning program?
A. No. ZLOG is a ten-month degree, campus-based, full-time program. There are no immediate plans to offer this degree via the Internet, part-time, or as an executive degree program.
Q. How much does the ZLOG Program cost?
A. Tuition for the ZLOG Program is €24,000. Tuition does not cover administrative fees (€300), books, living or travel expenses to Zaragoza or to Boston for the international exchange. Living expenses vary, depending on lifestyle and whether students wish to live alone, with roommates or with a family. The cost of living in Zaragoza is lower than in much of Europe. Currently, a budget of around €600 per month is the norm for single students.
Q. Is there any financial help available for ZLOG students?
A. Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC) offers scholarships through its self-funded MIT-Zaragoza Financial Aid Program. Admitted ZLOG students should refer to the Financial Aid Office which serves as an information point and support service for students seeking scholarships. The office offers advice on other external funding opportunities and personalized help with the preparation of scholarship applications.
Q. What are the admission requirements for the ZLOG Program?
A. All application materials must be received by the Round I deadline November 15, Round II Deadline February 1 or Round III Deadline April 1. If seats are available we shall proceed with rolling admissions. All applications are for Fall Term admission. Students seeking financial aid and/or international students are highly encouraged to apply in Rounds I and II to allow more funding opportunities and time for visa processing.
In addition to completing the application form, applicants must provide all academic transcripts, an up-to-date resumé, two letters of recommendation, and GRE or GMAT scores. Students whose first language is not English must demonstrate competency in English by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or IELTS.
