Tufts Gordon Institute, part of Tufts School of Engineering, prepares you to be a leader. We have re-engineered the MBA to create two graduate-level learning opportunities specifically for emerging tech leaders: the M.S. in Engineering Management (MSEM) and the Professional Education courses.

About the Program

The M.S. in Engineering Management (MSEM) prepares technology professionals to become industry leaders. The part-time graduate degree program provides the business strategy, marketing, product development, leadership competencies, and data science skills needed to move into leadership roles. The results? More than half of our students are promoted while enrolled in the program.

Here's how the program works.

  • Fast or flex? Choose from accelerated Two-Year MSEM or flexible Three-Year MSEM.
  • Maintain your work-life balance with a schedule tailored for working professionals (classes held in the evening or weekend.)
  • Deepen your technical expertise by having the option to take two graduate-level STEM electives in the Three-Year MSEM
  • Learn from your classmates - technology professionals from a variety of industries and educational backgrounds- in a cohort setting
  • Study with faculty mentors chosen for their deep industry experience.
  • Merit scholarships available to qualified applicants and Tufts alumni

(Note: International students can complete the program on a full-time basis.)

Professional Education

The individual, graduate-level courses offered under the Professional Education umbrella are designed to give you essential knowledge when you need it. Courses are open to working professionals and Tufts University graduate students.

  • Open to working professionals and Tufts University graduate students.
  • Classes conveniently take place from 6-9 in the evenings.
  • Individuals can transfer up to two credits towards the M.S. in Engineering Management program.

Tufts Gordon Institute is a proud member of the Master of Engineering Management Programs Consortium (MEMPC), a small group of highly recognized university graduate-level programs in engineering management and related degrees.
