About The Program

RIT’s Master of Science in Manufacturing Leadership (MML) is designed for experienced professionals who aspire to mid- and senior-level positions in manufacturing and service organizations. The program integrates business and engineering courses consistent with cross-functional competence so critical to operational excellence in operations, supply chain management, manufacturing, and process improvement.

State-of-the-art tools and techniques are integral to the program, and unifying themes include leadership, cross-functional and cross-cultural teaming, global operations, lean thinking, process engineering, and systems-oriented business decision making.  A Capstone project, oriented to the solution of a manufacturing or services management problem or process improvement initiative, enables students to apply new skills and capabilities to the solution of a pressing real-world problem, with significant financial benefit to sponsors.

Students may start the MML program during any term and complete the coursework at their own pace. The program is offered fully on-line or as a blend of on-line and on-campus courses.

Students also may take up to three courses on a non-matriculated basis. Credits earned while enrolled as a non-matriculated student may be applied to the degree program following formal admission.
