A full-time, accelerated program designed for people who want to make things happen. Who are passionate about science, technology, engineering, or math. Who believe new solutions will solve our toughest challenges – and make this a better world.
If you are a recent STEM graduate who wants to accelerate your career and be at the forefront of developing new ideas, the M.S. in Innovation & Management from Tufts University's Gordon Institute will provide you with the product innovation, marketing, finance and leadership skills you need to be a new leader in today’s technology-driven world. Specialized skills you need to drive sustainable, high-impact change and be a successful innovator. All in as little as one year.
Each semester, you’ll work on a fast-paced, immersive team venture called an Innovation Sprint, where you'll identify key problems, prototype solutions, and synthesize business and financial models that scale. With each of your three Innovation Sprints, you’ll go through the entire innovation cycle from ideation to rapid prototyping.
