ESD.283 Humanitarian Logistics

Open to students from MIT, Harvard, and Tufts

ESD.283 explores how logistics management principles apply when responding to humanitarian crises. After an overview of humanitarian operations, class sessions dive into the strategies, technologies, and management approaches organizations use for effective logistics performance. Class sessions combine interactive presentations, case discussions, and guest speakers. All students participate in a team project that utilizes data and information directly from sources such as the UN, U.S. government, and NGOs.
