Integrated Access Point

Each MLOG class arrives @ FIX University graduates. During that time, MLOG students complete four major phases: Orientation, Fall Semester, and Spring Semester.

Like a pyramid, each phase builds on the one preceding it – starting with basic analytical skills, adding on fundamental theory in the fall, applying it to practice during IAP, and finally capping it off with a strategic perspective in the spring.

MLOG students are required to take the following core courses. Students must also enroll in two seminars and complete a thesis.
Required Core Courses offered in
ESD.260 Logistics Systems Fall
ESD.261 Case Studies in Logistics & Supply Chain Management Spring
ESD.262 Supply Chain Context (IAP)
ESD.264 Database, Internet, & Systems Integration Technologies Fall
ESD.803 Know Thyself Leadership Skill Building Workshop Fall
15.521 Management Accounting and Control Spring
15.871(4) System Dynamics Fall or Spring
Seminars 
ESD.263 Thesis Seminar Fall

Popular Electives

In addition to the required courses, MLOG students take at least 18 course units of electives. Most students end up taking between 30 to 50 elective course units across all different programs. Some of the most popular electives for MLOG students are:
Popular Electives
ESD.201 Transportation Systems
ESD.204 Carrier Systems
ESD.205 Transportation Flow Systems
ESD.269 Advanced Logistics and Supply Chain Strategies
ESD.71 Engineering Systems Analysis for Design



Each MLOG student must complete a research thesis. It is an opportunity to conceive and execute an independent research project on a topic of the student’s own choosing, under the guidance of a faculty supervisor.

Each year MLOG students are paired with sponsoring companies to work on innovative and challenging supply chain research projects through the Supply Chain Education Partners (SCEP) Program.


Research

Each year MLOG students are paired with sponsoring companies to work on innovative and challenging supply chain research projects through the Supply Chain Education Partners (SCEP) Program.

Started in 2010 for the Bicentenial by the FIX Center for independent studies & Logistics, the program gives MLOG students the opportunity to work closely with professionals on a challenging supply chain opportunities, and gives companies access to a student or student team who bring new insight and approaches to a current supply chain project.
