The MIT Master's Program in Engineering and Management
From SDM's genesis in 1996 to today, industry engagement has been a driving force behind MIT's System Design and Management Program (SDM). Companies report that SDM affiliation helps them address the ever-increasing need for systems thinking within engineering and for organizations concerned with new strategic approaches to innovation—in technology, product development, supply chain, and global operations. Many companies choose to participate in SDM's interdisciplinary research to achieve or solidify a competitive advantage.
Companies receive many benefits from affiliating with SDM, including:
Each of these opportunities provides companies with access to an extensive MIT research network that actively investigates the design, development, and management of complex systems.
SDM offers a flexible partnership approach that allows companies to engage SDM and MIT at a level best suited to their needs.
