Startups and multinational corporations, nonprofits and government agencies all require a new kind of leadership—professionals with an innovation mindset and the expertise to translate ideas into real-world impact.

Serving Industry by Educating Leaders.

Tufts Gordon Institute prepares leaders for the global innovation economy. Through coursework that’s directly applicable to students’ professional interests and mentorship by faculty who are leaders in industry, students gain the skills, confidence, and experience to harness the power of cross-disciplinary teams to put innovation to work for their companies, their industries, and the world.

Everything we do, from the courses and content of our MS in Engineering Management (MSEM) degree, MS in Innovation & Management (MSIM)and our undergraduate minors in entrepreneurship and engineering management, to internships and graduate consulting projects, adds real value to our corporate partners.

Our programs stay grounded in the realities of business and industry with insights from leaders on the Tufts Gordon Institute Industry Advisory Council and Entrepreneurial Leadership Advisory Board.

Partnering with Tufts to Cultivate Technology Leadership

Representing diverse industries—from consumer technology to biopharma to defense to environmental services—companies that sponsor MSEM students are leaders with international impact, such as Genzyme, EMC, Draper Laboratory, Astra-Zeneca, GE Aviation, Analog Devices, Perkin Elmer, iRobot, and Pfizer. The combination of a shared technical background and broad range of industries among MSEM students creates a unique and rich learning environment. This dynamic community, combined with the hands-on MSEM curriculum and mentorship by faculty with expansive industry experience, provides your employees with tools, skills, and knowledge to add value to your company immediately, and over the long term.

Top companies also regularly engage with our graduate MSEM students via the Team Consulting project where MSEM students address our clients’ current challenges or provide insights to shape future products or services.
