RIT's globally recognized colleges of Engineering and Business responded to a challenge from their industrial partners to develop a focused, interdisciplinary program that would meet the needs of working professionals in operations, manufacturing, and services. The result of this collaboration was the Master of Science in Manufacturing Leadership (MML) program, designed to enhance technical, management, and leadership skills.

In addition to the full MML degree, three course certificate programs are available in Supply Chain Management and Project Management and Systems Engineering.
