Security is vital in today’s increasingly complex geopolitical environment. The challenges have yielded revolutionary innovations within the defense and security spaces. From government and intelligence agencies, to emerging defense tech companies, established contractors, research centers, and major corporations, the lines between “national” and “global” as well as “private” and “public” converge in new, complicated ways.

Companies focused on security are particularly interested in emerging talent within the MIT community. Career opportunities are often as diverse as the organizations themselves, with differing missions, products, clientele, and workforces. From venture capital to product development, to operations & logistics, to data analytics or consulting, a career in global security has numerous possibilities.

This program is being co-sponsored by The MIT Sloan Career Development Office, MIT Career Advising & Professional Development, and the MIT Sloan Global Security Technology Club. For more information, please email
