Colts Neck Alum Alexandra Calderaro Earns Top MIT Scholarship Award from Penn State University

Alexandra Calderaro, a graduating senior in the Penn State Smeal College of Business Supply Chain and Information Systems (SC&IS) major, has earned first place in the Supply Chain Excellence Award from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The MIT Supply Chain Excellence Award is granted to an outstanding graduating senior in supply chain at Penn State as a result of a partnership initiated between the two institutions in 2013. The award grants a tuition scholarship for the student’s use toward the MIT Supply Chain Management Master’s Degree Program. After completing a minimum of two years of work, Alex applies to MIT’s Master’s Program in supply chain management.

Danny Yunes, a Smeal supply chain alumnus and graduate of MIT’s Supply Chain Management Program, visited the Business Building to present the students with their awards. The MIT Supply Chain Management Program is a 10-month study program designed for early career professionals that includes coursework, a company-sponsored project, and international travel.
