Official Fall 2007 Graduate Catalog update information:

The Master of Science in Engineering Management program is appropriate for a wide range of industrial and/or technically-focused individuals who have previously pursued a four-year degree in technology, business, engineering or science. It meets the needs of technical professionals who are looking for both an advanced degree and appropriate preparation for their natural progression into management-level positions. It also meets the needs of professionals who are on a technical, rather than managerial career track, as it will help them to be more effective in managing the integration of their technically-focused jobs with others in team-based environment. Our program particularly fits the needs of busy professionals who are working in business, industry and the military-who may be located anywhere in the world-by being available completely online, as well as on the EMU campus.

Our engineering management program also functions as a primary area of specialization for students enrolled in the Ph.D. in Technology program at EMU.
