After six years’ successful collaboration on the dual-master-degree China Leaders for Global Operations program, we are aiming higher, in hopes of producing worldly operation leaders through offering a high-end and cutting-edge operations management program for China’s experienced executives.
Today, neither multinational corporations nor Chinese enterprises can evade the path of globalization. An enterprise’s competitive advantage is reflected in key performance metrics in categories including Customer, Quality, Time, Cost and Service, but more importantly in finding way to consolidate these elements and implement successful operations strategies. Only success in operations can testify to the company’s competitiveness in the market.
This program represents our universities’ commitment to bringing global faculty leaders together with top international companies in order to develop new insights into the trends that will define global operations. For the first time, we offer an opportunity for manufacturing executives to share these insights directly with MIT and SJTU faculty.
This executive program leverages the extraordinary talents of a core group of MIT faculty who advise industry leaders on the most complex and challenging aspects of their manufacturing and operations. Following in the long tradition of MIT-led, practice-oriented executive programs, the program will help participants learn important strategic concepts about manufacturing, operations and supply chain management, as well as specific strategies that have proven to be effective. The materials for the program include China-relevant case studies and widely recognized books authored by the program faculty leaders. Participants can expect to develop of a set of competencies that will allow them to have an immediate and lasting impact on their organization's future.
