Applying to the MEM Program

We're glad that you're considering Duke's Master of Engineering Management Program, and we're here to help you with any questions that you may have. Use the menu to navigate through our deadlines, requirements, and application system.

What kind of applicant is Duke’s MEM Program looking for?

There’s no single answer. You can view our class profiles to see the middle 50% for standardized testing and undergraduate grade point average, but showing a similar performance is not a guarantee of admission. We consider those quantitative aspects of your application, but also many qualitative aspects, such as:

  • Engagement in the classroom, extracurricular activities, or in industry,
  • Leadership in academic to professional settings,
  • Global Awareness, the appreciation and understanding of the world’s varying cultures, economies, and political systems,
  • Emotional Intelligence, including interpersonal skills and teamwork abilities, and
  • Engineering Leverage, the vision to see your engineering education as the foundation for your graduate studies.

Read more about these in our recent blog post. You can show these qualities through your application and its supporting documents.

We hope that you'll choose to apply, and we wish you the best of luck.
