Tufts Gordon Institute seeks to enroll students with a diverse range of educational backgrounds and professional experience who have a strong desire to be leaders within technology driven companies. Since the MSEM program is a part-time program, applicants should be working professionals who are living in the Boston area.
A minimum of two years of work experience, including internships, is strongly preferred. We believe that your experience as a technical professional tells us more about your capabilities than a standardized test, so M.S. in Engineering Management applicants are not required to submit GRE or GMAT test scores. An undergraduate degree in a STEM discipline (science, technology, engineering, and math) is preferred but not required.
The Two-Year and the Three-Year M.S. in Engineering Management programs at Tufts University's Gordon Institute have the same application process.
If you have any questions about your qualifications for our MSEM program or the application process, please contact the Gordon Institute's admissions staff. For additional detailed application instructions, visit the Tufts Graduate Admissions website.
Tufts Gordon Institute offers four application rounds. Applicants will generally hear back from the admissions committee within 4-6 weeks from the application deadline. Please contact our admissions staff if you have questions regarding the status of your application.
The 2018-19 Application deadlines are as follows:
Scholarships: Tufts Gordon Institute awards a limited number of tuition scholarships to M.S. in Engineering Management students. To be considered for a scholarship, you are encouraged to complete the scholarship aid form included within the online admissions process, submitting your application by the Round 2 deadline (March 15th).
The Tufts Alumni Advantage Scholarship Program provides guaranteed scholarships to all Tufts alumni who are accepted to the MSEM program.
It is not recommended that international applicants currently living outside of the US apply for the MSEM program since it is a part-time program designed for working professionals who live within commuting distance of the Tufts University campus. If you are a recent college graduate (or will graduate soon) and are looking for a full-time MSEM/MEM program, we have a better option for you to consider. Our M.S. in Innovation and Management (MSIM) is a revolutionary, new engineering management option that provides you with the same core fundamentals as an MSEM/MEM program, including product development, finance and accounting, marketing, business strategy and leadership, while also offering you an immersive and transformative experience that will advance your ability to drive tech innovation. If you want to accelerate your career and be at the forefront of developing and launching new ideas, whether it be within a start-up or an existing company, we encourage you to learn more about our MSIM program.
A minimum score of 100 on the Internet-based TOEFL, with subscores of 25 on each of the four components (reading, writing, listening, speaking) is generally considered evidence of sufficient English language ability for graduate study at Tufts Gordon Institute. Equivalent scores of 7 on the IELTS (with subscores of 7) are also considered indication of sufficient ability.
If an applicant meets certain criteria, the TOEFL or IELTS is not required. Please view additional details on the Graduate Admissions website. Please note that work experience in the US does not qualify you for a TOEFL waiver.
For TOEFL scores: The Tufts University school code number is 3901.
For IELTS scores: Please select that your scores be sent to: Tufts University – Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. IELTS scores can also be sent directly via postal mail to the following address:
