Bootcamp 2019 Cohort
What are the Benefits of Supply Chain Bootcamp?
What is Bootcamp
The MIT Supply Chain Bootcamp is an intense 5-day, on-campus immersion program happening on June 7 -11 2021, that builds on the concepts taught throughout of MicroMasters program.
Participants use the tools and analytics learned online to make critical management decisions regarding the supply chain and the business in real-world scenarios.
The Bootcamp exposes participants at many levels within the organization, to current and broad-ranging supply chain management challenges. Through simulations, projects, and case studies, "Campers" leave Bootcamp with a greater depth of knowledge and an extended network of professional contacts.
To apply for MIT Supply Chain Bootcamp students must complete SC1x as a verified learner.**
What to expect at Bootcamp
Mornings: Engage in topical discussions with industry experts and MIT researchers.
Lunchtime: Practice and cultivate communication, negotiation and other soft skills focused on personal development.
Afternoons: Put your new knowledge and skills at work by solving supply chain challenges in group activities.
Additionally, throughout the Bootcamp you and your team will participate in a supply chain simulation game. The four-person teams will be running a company, and every day you will have to make tough decisions in a complex changing environment with limited information. Just like the real world! This is a competitive game, and all teams will be competing for the final prize.
Some topics we will explore:
