"There are few institutions that can provide depth in design, business, and engineering at the graduate level like CMU. For me, the MIIPS program offered a unique combination of educational excellence in all three fields with a passionate, exceptional student base at a university that has a deep history of fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration."

- Catherine Sun (MIIPS '05)

“I looked at MBA programs, however, I felt that they were not focused on software engineering as a discipline. The MSSM program closed the gap for me. It is an MBA for software engineers. Using software engineering skills, I am able to make users' lives better by building useful products for them."

- Shabbir Suterwala (MSSM '11)

tbd“It’s unique because it transforms you. You don’t even realize you are being transformed. To really understand innovation, I had to understand the core of innovation and how to design for a specific consumer segment.

This brought me to Carnegie Mellon to study design in order to understand people's needs and wants and to integrate in an innovative way.”

- Garima Srivastava (MIIPS '16)
