What is the MSMS Program?
The Master of Science in Management Studies program is a unique, customizable degree that complements an MBA or equivalent master’s degree from a partner or affiliate school—Asia School of Business, Fudan International MBA Program, HEC Paris, IE Business School, Imperial College Business School, INSEAD, Lingnan College at Sun Yat-sen University, Lisbon MBA Program and Tsinghua Global MBA Program.
The MSMS program allows recent graduates or current students from these schools to pursue advanced studies in management and receive a Master of Science degree from MIT in nine months. Students have the ability to immerse themselves in a particular area of study; including, Economics, Finance and Accounting (EFA), Behavioral and Policy Sciences (BPS), and Management Science (MS), and then complete a thesis based on their area of interest.
A minimum of 24 out of 90 units of the program of study must focus on the application of statistical modeling, data warehousing, data mining, programming, forecasting, or operations research techniques to the analysis of problems of business organization and performance. This can be fulfilled by selecting from a pre-approved list of courses or through the required thesis.
The MSMS program qualifies as a STEM-designated program. International students pursuing US-based STEM-eligible jobs are eligible to apply for a 24-month extension to their current 12 months of curricular optional practical training following degree completion.
Students can also broaden their knowledge and experience base with MIT Sloan Action Learning courses along with MIT and Harvard courses.
Expert and Approachable Faculty
You’ll notice an informality at MIT born of mutual respect. Everyone here is exceptional, and everyone assumes you are, too. The professors you have lunch with know that because you’re at MIT, you have a hand in something both interesting and meaningful. They respect that. If you have questions, they'll help you find the answers, or lead you to someone who can. And those expert professors, like most people here, are refreshingly down to earth.
