MMM Program Overview


A Dual Degree with Value

MMM graduates earn two master’s degrees: one through the Kellogg School of Management and one from the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, focusing on design innovation and technology.

In addition to a rigorous classroom education, the program also offers a robust variety of co-curricular, hands-on learning opportunities, including:

  • a capstone Integration Project working with a major corporation
  • an exclusive MMM studio and prototyping space
  • MMM-specific business and design competitions
  • Opportunities to visit design facilities, both domestic and overseas

The interdisciplinary nature of this program positions our graduates for key roles, such as product management, immediately after graduation. MMM students graduate ready to design and manage end-to-end solutions.

Design Innovation: A Key Differentiator

Design innovation is creating new value through using design centric tools, such as empathy and deep human understanding, visualization, prototyping, and iteration. We apply these tools to not only problem solving but first and foremost to both problem and opportunity finding. This platform of creative thinking and doing is a strategic complement to the analytical side of business management.

Program Duration

The program requires two years of full-time study to complete. Our students start in June and end in June, completing seven quarters of study over two calendar years, plus a summer internship between the first and second year.

Career Advantages

Students will enjoy the following resources and opportunities:

  • MMM-dedicated career coach
  • Access to Kellogg recruiting events for full-time students
  • Access to exclusive MMM recruiting opportunities
  • Membership in two Northwestern alumni networks: Kellogg and McCormick
