Advanced Study Program
Investing in an MIT Education
MIT Professional Education - Advanced Study Program fellows return to their companies, organizations, and government groups with a powerful competitive edge – a synthesis of new knowledge, next-generation perspectives, and the drive to innovate. Investing in an MIT education for your employees at several career phases can bring long-term business benefits. Hands-on managers can return with tactical problem-solving skills, and executives can gain strategic insight on billion-dollar decisions. For years to come, your enterprise can benefit from having an inside connection to MIT’s pioneering research, preeminent faculty, and a global network of fellows and students who are rising industry leaders.
Education for action
Fellows plan their studies to meet sponsor objectives. A NASA engineer brought lean manufacturing practices back to the team after studying with the Lean Aerospace Initiative. A chemical engineer focused on advances in fermentation technology. Each returned with applicable skills, objective insights, and business value.
Fellows earn credit for completing regular MIT undergraduate and graduate courses on campus. Students may also arrange research projects with faculty and attend seminars and social activities with faculty, staff, and other students. Please consult Costs & Dates for application deadlines and processes.
Costs and commitments
Fellows take between one and four MIT courses for one or more semesters. Fellows and their organizations are responsible for living expenses, fees, and tuition. See Costs & Dates for annual tuition and living costs.
The Advanced Study Program is an international program with about half the fellows coming from the U.S. and half from other countries. Non-U.S. applicants should visit Admissions for visa rules, earlier application dates, and TOEFL requirements.
