Industrial Management at KTH

The main focus of the programme is understanding the creation of value for customers. We address this issue at three different levels: firstly, the industry level, where the focus of attention is the economic and technical transformation in national and global markets. 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. Thirdly, the individual level, which focuses on leading people in change.

The programme consists of a number of tailored and programme-exclusive courses that provide detailed understanding in relation to each of the three levels, as well as 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 takes pride in having close contact and frequent interaction with industrial 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 curricula, in order for all students to be prepared to take on leadership positions in industrial and technology-intensive organisations after completing the programme.
