The master’s programme in Industrial Management targets students with a profound engineering background who aim to take leadership positions in industrial and technology-based organisations. Students acquire an understanding of value creation and specialise in areas such as management, leadership, supply chain, industrial transformation, managing research and innovation, strategy and industrial marketing. The programme has extensive industry interaction throughout.

Industrial Management at KTH

The programme's main focus is understanding the creation of value for customers. We address this issue at three different levels:
1. Firstly, the industry level, where the focus of attention is the economic and technical transformation in national and global markets.
2. Secondly, the firm level, which focuses on the management of value-creating functions and processes such as research and development, operations and sourcing and marketing and distribution.
3. Thirdly, the individual level, which focuses on the people leading change.
The programme consists of several tailored courses exclusively provided for the programme. They form a detailed understanding of the three levels of value creation and the interrelation between them. The learning process throughout the programme is enhanced by the integrated design of the compulsory courses – where case assignments, problem-based learning, and interaction with the industry are of central importance. The programme is designed around a number of mandatory courses covering theoretical knowledge and skills related to managing key functions in industrial organisations. Furthermore, the individual and the industrial level of analysis are also covered, providing you with the capability to handle industrial challenges from a systems perspective. Through the elective courses, you can specialise in a number of areas such as management, control, supply chain, project management, economics and leadership.
The programme takes pride in having close contact and frequent interaction with industry leaders and their organisations. For example, all courses have guest lecturers from the industry. Moreover, interview assignments, study visits and industrial projects are core activities in the curriculum, preparing you to take on leadership positions in industrial and technology-intensive organisations after completing the programme.
This is a two-year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Industrial Engineering and Management (at KTH).
