Top 5 Reasons to Choose the MS in Engineering Management

  1. An Advanced Degree to Advance into Management–Technology and innovation are changing the world at a rapid pace. To advance into leadership positions, you need expertise in both your primary area of focus and in business. The interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering Management gives you that edge to position yourself for new opportunities as you advance your career.

  2. An Interdisciplinary Curriculum for Rising Leaders–The MS in Engineering Management integrates engineering and business courses that will prepare you to help your organization make the most effective use of its resources. You can tailor your program through a variety of electives, including MBA courses from our AACSB International Accredited College of Business. Enhance your expertise and value further by pursuing the MS in Engineering Management/MBA Dual Degree, which allows you to leverage cross-credits from both programs, saving time and money.

  3. Learn from Engineering and Business Experts–You will study with Engineering and Business faculty who have industrial or business expertise complemented by outstanding academic credentials. Our graduate classes average 20 students. The smaller classes will help you maximize your ability to immerse yourself in the advanced course content, collaborate with classmates, and interact with your professors.

  4. On Campus or Online Hybrid Options–Work, family, and other commitments can make it difficult to find the right time to fit in an advanced degree. That’s why all Engineering Management classes are “hybrid” which allows students to be online or in class seamlessly. In-class evening sessions take place on our beautiful, accessible campus. Online courses are delivered through Kodiak, our easy to use learning management system.

  5. Flexible Study at Your Own Pace–With multiple entry points throughout the year, you can pursue your studies at a pace that fits the demands of your career and lifestyle. Full- and part-time options are available, so you decide what time-frame works for you to complete your program. If you’re not sure about committing to a full master’s program, you can begin your studies through one of our graduate certificate programs. The certificates are typically completed in one year, and do not require admission into the master’s program. Your certificate credits can eventually count toward your master’s.
