ResMed has become the newest member of The MIT Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) program’s industry partnership.

MIT Leaders for Global Operations collaborates with the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT School of Engineering to deliver an interdisciplinary engineering-MBA dual degree program. The two-year curriculum features internships at partner companies.

ResMed CEO Mick Farrell is a 1998 alumnus of the MIT Leaders for Global Operations program.

“ResMed aligns with the underlying vision of the MIT LGO program to meld engineering and management excellence,” says Thomas Roemer, executive director of the MIT LGO program, in a release. “The ResMed internships will be high value engagements that train future operations leaders with the technical depth and management capability to drive innovation in industry 4.0. It will also generate unique research insights into AI and machine learning.”

Farrell says, “The future of healthcare is digital, and we need leaders with both engineering expertise and business acumen to help guide this industry and provide life-changing care to billions of people worldwide.”

ResMed will launch its MIT LGO internship program in June 2021 with projects that aim to shape the future of healthcare. Six-month internships to be held in San Diego and/or European and Asia-Pacific locations will focus on optimizing global supply chains to provide access to rich information and empower rapid decision making, the use of data science techniques to personalize patient therapy, and exploring machine learning solutions to improve operational efficiency.

“The MIT LGO program is well aligned with ResMed’s ongoing digital health technology strategy,” says ResMed’s program sponsor and chief technology officer Bobby Ghoshal, in a release. “We’re excited to help develop the next generation of industry leaders.”
