Students of the PhD Program on Logistics and Supply Chain Management from Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC) 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.
