The Georgia Institute of Technology’s Executive Master’s in International Logistics (EMIL) program has teamed with chipmaker Intel to support the next generation of supply chain research. EMIL is a master’s degree program that helps the world’s leading companies groom their supply chain executives.

Developed as a collaborative effort between the Georgia Tech and an advisory board of Fortune 500 companies, such as The Home Depot, Wal-Mart, The Ford Motor Company, FedEx and The Coca-Cola Company, EMIL allows companies to tackle their most critical supply chain challenges while keeping key employees on the job during the 18-month program. The program includes five 2-week residencies at key locations around the world. The remainder of the time, participants are on the job using practical techniques taught during EMIL residencies to reduce logistics costs and improve supply chain efficiencies in their real-world situations.
