Today's global marketplace requires a new type of manager-leader: one able to fuse strategic business practices with cutting-edge technology.
The Master of Management and Manufacturing Program offers an unparalleled opportunity to master these critical skills and prepare for a lifetime of professional achievement.
MMM is a two-year dual degree program of the Kellogg School of Management and the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University.
The MMM program offers many advantages:
- The opportunity to earn two degrees, with one set of curricular requirements, in just two years: the Master of Business Administration degree from the Kellogg School of Management and the Master of Engineering Management degree from the Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.
- A flexible curriculum that allows students to take a wide array of courses in areas most suited to their career goals, including marketing, operations, finance, and entrepreneurship.
- A hands-on, team-based approach to learning that applies theory to real-world challenges.
- A shared student experience with peers in the Kellogg School's full-time MBA program, including extracurricular and leadership opportunities.
- Access to world-class experts and facilities in nanotechnology, biotechnology and other technical disciplines with significant business implications.
- Outstanding career opportunities in a wide range of functions and industries, including general management, operations and production, finance, product development, business development, marketing and strategic planning.
The MMM program provides unique opportunities for students to build on their classroom learning through coursework and activities that apply the key concepts to real-world manufacturing organizations.
The MMM coursework culminates in the Integration Project. In this course, student teams draw on their broad-based studies to serve as consultants to leading manufacturing companies or to develop a business venture based on a new product. The MMM Integration Projects, MMM Entrepreneurship Program, Global Initiatives in Management program and the annual student-run Manufacturing Business Conference are just a few such opportunities available to students.
In order to preserve maximum flexibility for advanced coursework, some study is accelerated to take advantage of the strong quantitative backgrounds of MMM students (e.g., MMMs take an accelerated finance course in place of Finance I and II). Financial accounting and elementary statistics are prerequisites. Students who have not had these courses should take them before entering the program.
Students must complete a minimum of 24.5 classes over six quarters to earn the degree. Core classes must be taken for a grade; at most two manufacturing electives may be taken pass/no pass.
