ONLINE COURSE CATALOG

The Society maintains a crowd-sourced list of online courses of interest to the systems thinking and System Dynamics community.  There are more than 75 courses represented, many of which are absolutely free.  For many of the courses that do charge a fee, the Society has negotiated discounts for those who join the Society.

SUMMER SCHOOL

An intensive one week course in System Dynamics Modeling, prior to our annual conference.  Students convene online with world class modelers and teaching assistants offering guidance.  This course has options for introductory and intermediate modelers, it is intensive and intended for those serious about learning how to model. There is a fee to attend, but financial support is available for promising students in need. 

DEGREE COURSES

The field of System Dynamics can be studied around the world at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as in executive education programs (non-degree) and workshops. We hope this page will give you some ideas about where to study.
