Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM)

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.

  • Earn your master’s degree in evening/weekend classes.
  • Maintain your work-life balance with a schedule tailored for working professionals (classes held in the evening or weekend.)
  • 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
