MIT Professional Education addresses corporate education needs and strategic goals through custom educational programs. The staff works with your managers to help define needs and then coordinate with MIT faculty to design a targeted, needs-based learning experience.
These courses can be a single week or several weeks over a year with interrelated projects. These specialized courses can be delivered at MIT, the company site, or off site. Custom courses apply research insights to your organization’s real-world challenges while developing productive new networks among employees.
Courses at MIT can include faculty lectures from several departments as well as lab tours and other local activities designed around a company’s strategic goals. Hotel accommodation and conference facilities are available near campus, or a program can be held at the MIT Endicott House.
Courses offered at company sites can be customized from an on-campus or online course listed in our course catalog. These courses are frequently offered to provide a large group or department a solid foundation in a strategic science or technology area.
If you have been thinking about a customized course for your group of 30 or more, contact the office for more information.
