System Design and Management

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.

Global Mind-Set, Global Markets

SDM provides a global mind-set; 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.

Leadership Development for Positive Change

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 important — within oneself.
