Discover the MSEM Experience

Considering an MBA or MS?

Whether you’re developing vaccines or hardware, you know that one size doesn’t fit all. So, why pick a general MBA program when you can specialize in technology management? In fact, Harvard Business Review has found that more top-performing CEOs globally have engineering degrees than MBAs.

The Tufts MSEM program starts with a tech-driven curriculum taught by faculty with decades of industry experience, and ends with you primed to make the move from the lab to the corner office and beyond.

It might be called the M.S. in Engineering Management, but the program is for all ambitious science and technology professionals, whether they have backgrounds in engineering, chemistry, computer science, biotechnology or even non-technical education. In fact, our students work locally in diverse tech fields, including pharmaceuticals, software development and the non-profit sector. What they do share is a love for STEM and the desire to lead in a technology-driven environment.
