Primary tabs

To celebrate the arrival of the seventh group of GT/NUS Dual MS program students and the selection of the fourth group of Global Logistics Scholar, the Stewart School of ISyE's Supply Chain & Logistics Institute hosted a dinner in their honor on January 8. Before dinner the group gathered to hear welcoming comments from the Stewart School of ISyE School Chair Chelsea C. White III, Supply Chain & Logistics Institute Executive Director Don Ratliff, and Director of the GT/NUS Dual Degree Program Chen Zhou.

"We are delighted with both groups of students," said Zhou. "These are exceptionally bright students and it is a great pleasure to lead them through the Georgia Tech portion of the program. At Georgia Tech, these students will participate in courses in supply chain engineering. To provide a link between what they learn in class with real world practice, we schedule about 10 tours throughout the semester of various manufacturing, distribution, and transportation facilities."

The Dual Master Program (DMP) is a prestigious 18-month program pioneered in collaboration between the NUS and Georgia Tech. Drawing on the academic resources of both NUS and GT, the DMP is tailored to train logistics professional for strategic and management roles in their respective organizations. The DMP is taught by top academics from the faculty of Engineering, Business and Computing at NUS as well as the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. The program leads to two degrees: a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and a Master of Science in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

ISyE students selected to be Global Logistics Scholars, a certificate program sponsored by the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute, take classes alongside the GT/NUS Dual Degree Program students. The Global Logistics Scholar program is designed for MSIE students and includes logistics seminars and tours, professional education short courses, and other special events. Selected students participate in academic and extra-curricular activities with students enrolled in other international programs, allowing them to interact with logistics faculty, industry professionals, and potential employers.
