The engineer, scientist, or technologist moving into a leadership or managerial role needs the latest business tools and techniques to drive their organizations to success. These tools are not normally part of the technical undergraduate curriculum. When experience is not enough and 33 hours of graduate credit is too much, consider a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management.
All course requirements can be completed on-line, live (usually between 5:30 and 8:15 p.m. for 15 weeks) or a combination of the two. Those attending live at the Memphis campus will be provided dinner from our cafeteria as part of the tuition fee. Additionally all students will be provided the course textbook either hard-copy or electronic format (when available), as part of the tuition fee. All classes are captured on our media servers so if you cannot make it to a particular live lecture because of work or family obligations, you can watch a video recording later.
All classes can be applied toward the MSEM or MSCIS Program upon successful completion.
