Duke's MEM Program is available on a part-time basis, with about 10% of our students choosing this option. The program consistently offers several electives and at least one section of each core course during late afternoon hours to make it easier for part-time students, and the majority of our courses meet only once per week. Some technical electives offered by other departments may meet twice per week, and of course, students sometimes find that they're interested in a mid-day course, but the hope is that these students can work out a flexible schedule with their managers. See Duke's semester listings; our courses are offered under the symbol EGRMGMT. Part-time students apply using our standard application; see How to Apply.
The Dartmouth Semester Option
Students may opt to attend one semester at Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering in Hanover, New Hampshire. Dartmouth's MEM program utilizes the resources of the Tuck Business School for its business focus and allows students to take courses that parallel Duke's program.
Duke Graduate and Professional Students in Other Departments
Duke graduate and professional students who are not enrolled in the MEM Program may register for some MEM courses (i.e. courses designated with EGRMGMT course numbers) on a space-available basis and with permission of the instructor. Instructors will require students to have sufficient background for the course as needed AND may also limit outside enrollment for any pedagogical reason. Generally no more than 5 non-MEM students will be allowed to enroll in a course at any given time. Students who enroll in MEM courses as non-MEM students may not utilize these courses for an MEM degree. Generally the MEM core courses are not available to non-MEM students. Non-MEM students cannot register for MEM courses through ACES. Instead, they must complete the Non-MEM Registration form, obtain permission from the instructor and from their home department, and return the form to the MEM Office at 3120 Fitzpatrick (CIEMAS).
