Master's Program in Engineering and Management at MIT

Jointly offered by MIT's School of Engineering and the MIT Sloan School of Management, the System Design and Management (SDM) master's program in engineering and management educates mid-career professionals to lead effectively and creatively by using systems thinking to solve large-scale, complex challenges in product design, development, and innovation.

SDM offers full-time on-campus and part-time flex options that include commuter and distance learning opportunities. Together they combine MITís academic rigor with state-of-the-art, synchronous technology that enables off-campus students to attend live classes with their cohort and work on team assignments with classmates from around the world.

SDM provides a global mindset; a systems thinking perspective that integrates management, technology, and social sciences; and ways to lead across organizational and cultural boundaries to address rapidly accelerating complexity and change in today's global markets.

The curriculum of MIT's System Design and Management program encompasses leadership development and critical, creative, and integrative thinking as well as an appreciation of diversity and an understanding of how to foster positive change within organizations, society at large, and—most importantly—within oneself.
