Abstract: MIT's System Design & Management program (SDM) is a distance education master's degree program in engineering and management for industry employees that hopes to overcome some of the typical barriers to organizational learning. The author has collected a variety of data on the SDM program, and this paper discusses some of the results so far. Findings focus on the technology used for distance learning, the students' ability to apply their learning in the workplace, and the difficulty for students and faculty to adapt to the distance learning setting.
