Master of IP Management and Markets

  • Study Level Masters
  • Duration 10 months
The IPMM program can be completed at our Chicago, Illinois campus with about 10 months of full-time study (30 credit hours) starting in August of each year and running until the following June. Students also have an option to attend the IPMM Program on a part-time or remote basis. All part-time or remote students will need to complete at least one class at our Chicago campus, typically our “Capstone” course, which is the final course in the Program’s sequence where students undertake a two week intensive “IP Audit” of an actual company, bringing to bear all the skills learned through the program and reporting their findings to the company’s senior executives. Taking the ‘boot camp’ class in Chicago is also highly advised, this two week class takes place in August of each year. Course work in the Program tracks the life cycle of intellectual property from its inception to full exploitation. Courses include doctrinal as well as skills instruction and practice with real-world problems and real-world solutions. Each class includes the practical application of skills, a new course is focused entirely on IP Analytics. For non-technologists, we offer course work designed to build confidence in working with researchers and others who create the IP we focus on. Remote students “attend” the on campus classes. Students will join with on campus students for project work by forming virtual teams. The entire program is designed to build the skills of the 21st century. Electives covering basic instruction in the fields of engineering, law and business provide you with an opportunity to enhance or augment your prior education or business experiences. During the program, you'll collaborate with other students as a cohort, drawing upon each other's experiences and ideas. Instructional teams are drawn from five IIT colleges as well as from the world of IP practitioners. Your classes will also draw instructors from at least two disciplines.
