The Industrial Management programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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.

The main focus of the Industrial Management programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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 the people leading change.

The programme consists of a number of tailored courses exclusively provided for the programme. They form a detailed understanding of the three levels of value creation, 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 is designed around a number of mandatory courses covering theoretical knowledge and skills related to management of the key functions in industrial organisations. Furthermore, the individual and the industrial level of analysis are also covered, providing students with the capability of handling industrial challenges based on a systems perspective. Through the elective courses, students can specialise in a number of areas such as management, control, supply chain, project management, economics and leadership.


The master’s programme in Industrial Management offers a unique opportunity of combining and developing comprehensive engineering knowledge with advanced management and leadership skills. This particular combination is very attractive for most industrial businesses worldwide. After completing the programme, the student will have developed suitable skills to take on a technology/management consultant role or a functional/project managerial position in international technology-based firms.
