You need hands-on experience; not a textbook. That's why the program is built around three Innovation Sprints — fast-paced, immersive team projects that give you real-world experience with the entire innovation cycle. From engaging with customers and testing new solutions to problems, you'll develop in-demand skills.
Build Your Network
One-on-one mentorship. Career Planning Seminars. Cross-functional group projects. It all adds up to a unique integrated curriculum. Learn from a cohort of classmates, faculty with real-world industry experience, and an alumni community working at high-powered companies like Google, Amazon, Pfizer, and Uber.
Tap Into a Top-Ranked Research University
Access innovative research across all parts of the Tufts community like Biomedical Sciences and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Participate in the Derby Entrepreneurship Center's competitions and workshops to fund your venture.
Maximize Your Experience
Combine your MSIM with an MS in Engineering to build technical expertise.
With our Dual Degree Program, you can earn 2 master's in just 2 years.
Through the Dual Degree Program, you'll gain all of the innovation skills from the MSIM in the first year, and build technical depth through Tufts University's School of Engineering in the second year. The whole time, you will benefit from a reduced course load, discounted tuition, and faster time to graduation. Choose from a wide range of programs, including Biomedical Engineering, Data Science, Mechanical Engineering, and many more to follow your interests.
Haiting Chan, MSIM '20 + MS in Computer Engineering '21
Software Engineer at Amazon Robotics
"Engineers often start at a technical role, but then it's like, 'Where would I go from there?' I was always torn between wanting to follow a deeply technical route versus going into management or leadership. I hoped that the experiences from one degree would inform the other, creating new perspectives. This is definitely true in countless ways! For instance, the skills I learned doing technical research could inform my business decisions on a venture with high-tech solutions."
"Our students are relentlessly driven to innovate the future of this technology-driven world, and through the MSIM program, we empower students to uncover the long-lasting impact of their technical skills while leading with boldness and conviction to inspire change."

"The innovation program at Tufts is a no-brainer. You gain management skills and you can get your hands dirty trying to build something from the ground up. I wouldn't be able to do all I'm doing now without that hands-on, one-on-one interaction and mentorship here."
Laura Taraboanta, MSIM '19 | Manager, Clinical Innovations at Click Therapeutics, Inc.
"MSIM stood in clear contrast to other graduate programs due to its focus and commitment to the quality of support for its graduate students. From learning directly from industry experts to one-on-one dedicated career development, the MSIM program delivered on its promise to equip students with the necessary tools for the careers they envision and supports you well beyond the classroom setting."
