What is the MIT Corporate Innovation Program?
The Corporate Innovation Program (CIP) provides a unique opportunity for global corporations to engage with MIT through an immersive year-long cohort-based program.
Experiencing vs. Training
This isn’t a corporate training or even an executive education course. CIP brings your company inside MIT’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship community—providing invaluable access to programs, faculty, and students.
Learn to think like an MIT-er
Through a customized series of engagements, case studies, workshops, and interactive discussions, you gain a unique MIT-insider perspective into the process of innovation and learn how to leverage corporate innovation methodologies to address your specific business challenges.
As a member, your team will:
Learn MIT Innovation
Explore the fundamentals, best practices, and the value of innovation ecosystems.
Practice Innovation Skills
Build teams, define challenges, explore new approaches, and flex your creative problem-solving skills.
Engage with MIT's I&E Ecosystem
Explore connections with MIT experts around specific topics that you help select.
Sustain Innovation Practices
Stay agile, connected, and innovative even after you complete your twelve month program.
