M.S. in Engineering Management

Worldwide Embry-Riddle Masters Engineering Management

The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) degree is designed for working professionals who desire to add management skill to their prior degrees in engineering, math, physical science, computer science, or another STEM field. The degree is designed to assist those students to move into managerial roles in technical organizations. The degree expands on the student’s existing technical abilities, adding management knowledge and skills.

Technical organizations require managers who understand the technical nature of the firm’s business. Upon completion of the multi-disciplinary degree, students will have the knowledge to become managers in a technical organization.

The program combines a core curriculum with a selection of concentrations, allowing students to expand their knowledge in an area of interest. Concentrations include financial management; project management; systems engineering; leadership; management; logistics and supply chain management; and aviation/aerospace management.

These concentrations provide the student the opportunity to specialize in an area of their choice and interest, allowing the student to tailor his or her degree in a manner that best fulfills the student's career objectives.

Prerequisite Knowledge:  Dependent upon a student’s background; students may be required to take BUSW 500 Business Foundations Course to satisfy prerequisite
