Malaysia, with its central location in Southeast Asia and its good infrastructure, is becoming a regional procurement & supply chain hub for physical goods and information flow. Effective supply chain management is core to almost every industry.
MISI is a postgraduate education institution and research centre focused on supply chain
management, logistics and procurement. Founded by the Malaysian government in
collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States of
America and wholly owned by Malaysia Logistics Innovation Berhad, a subsidiary of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), its mission is to develop supply chain leaders for the future and drive applied research and innovation.
MISI offers a Master’s programme in supply chain management that can be completed in 10 months as a full-time programme or in two to three years as a part-time programme.
MISI industry outreach programmes support local and regional companies in developing
supply chain talent and incorporating innovation in their supply chains.
MISI provides the opportunity for working professionals to enhance their skills through the
short courses and executive education programs it offers. These enable supply chain and procurement professionals to brush up their skills or learn about new technologies, such as Internet of Things in Supply Chains.
MISI offers scholarships for Malaysians. High performing students in MISI’s degree
programs travel to MIT in Boston and spend 3 weeks at MIT immersed in supply chain
management at MISI’s expense.
“MISI really helped me as Asia Category Sourcing Manager for my company. I enjoyed
working while learning. The course structures helped me to understand various aspects of procurement strategy and helped me apply sourcing strategy linked to carbon footprint
reduction and sustainability,” Lee Chee Chung, Master’s Degree Class of 2019 (Part-time Program)
