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, 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 drive sustainable, high-impact change as a new leader in today’s technology-driven world. Specialized skills you need to 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.
Big team projects are supported by small seminar-style courses. They’re interactive, in-depth, and taught exclusively by Tufts professors with decades of experience running innovative companies and social ventures.
MSIM courses include:
As an innovator, you know that what you do now can seriously transform the near future. Your MSIM experience isn’t just about a diploma. It’s mentorship from well-connected faculty. It’s access to 7,000+ jobs through the Tufts Career Center database. It's building a foundation where you'll learn new skills, forge connections, and launch your career. Discover the passion that will inspire your innovative spirit.
Class sizes are kept small to foster an intimate and immersive environment of collaboration. You'll leave the program with a deep network of fellow innovators, who come from around the world and have varied goals: End the toxic cycle of poverty in Kenya. Make sustainable, renewable energy a reality. Build an organization that connects refugees to their new community. Eliminate inefficiencies in healthcare with smarter clinical therapies.
