Located in one of the world's foremost centers of innovation—Cambridge, Massachusetts' Kendall Square—MIT is the world's leading university in science, technology, and innovation. Kendall Square's intersection at Vassar Street and Main Street—home of MIT Professional Education—was named "the world's most innovative intersection" by Wired magazine (November 2, 2015). The power of innovation at MIT is undeniable. In fact, 25 percent of MIT alumni have founded companies with innovations that started at the school; 31 percent hold one or more patents, and in total, they've created 4.6 million jobs around the globe that generate nearly $2 trillion in annual revenues.

For those who seek advancement in a specific area beyond the completion of individual courses, MIT Professional Education — Short Programs offers the Professional Certificate Program in Innovation and Technology.
