Our Goal: Train Tech Industry Leaders

We provide to a select group of high-potential students with science and engineering backgrounds an engineering management curriculum that is:

  • Personal
  • State of the art
  • Applied


State of the Art

  • Interdisciplinary: Integration of business, law, and engineering with the support of the Fuqua School of Business and the Duke School of Law.
  • Workshops: Regularly scheduled workshops on topics such as presentation delivery and writing skills allow students to further develop marketable business knowledge in a personalized, interactive environment.


  • Team-based Learning: Students work together to develop solutions that could not have been attained individually.
  • Case Study Method: Cases place students in a complex business situation where they must analyze a variety of options and propose a course of action based on the concepts that have been taught.
  • Seminars: Seminars offer students the opportunity to interact with top industry leaders and are designed to expose students to different aspects of business and industry.


* Fuqua School of Business courses are offered on a space-available basis with instructor consent. Fuqua courses are offered in six-week terms rather than semesters, and Master of Engineering Management students are limited to one (1) Fuqua course per term, two per semester. Fuqua courses require a separate registration process from that of engineering courses.
