Online Program

Earn a master's degree or graduate certificate from Duke while working full-time

We offer:

  • A distributed Master of Engineering Management Degree, an online option which can be completed in two years
  • A four-course Business Foundations for Engineers Graduate Certificate, which may be completed at your pace


Duke's Distributed Master of Engineering Management Program (d-MEMP) is an innovative two-year distance option that integrates the flexibility of online classes with cohort-centric on-campus residencies.

In two years, you can earn a Master of Engineering Management degree remotely while working full-time and:

  • Study the same core curriculum of marketing, finance, intellectual property and business law, and management by viewing recordings of our campus classes and interacting with fellow students and faculty through email, social media, web conferencing, and instant messaging technologies.
  • Through our elective tracks, focus on building expertise in Customer Experience and Product Design, Data Analytics and Machine Learning, Operations and Supply Chain Management, Product Management, Technology Development and Commercialization—or build your own customized track of electives.
  • Attend three weeklong residencies on Duke’s North Carolina campus to connect with fellow distance students, campus peers, program faculty, and the larger Duke network while taking part in challenging leadership workshops emphasizing communication, creativity, and collaboration.
  • Engage with a supportive cohort of like-minded professionals focused on enhancing their professional development while managing responsibilities at work and home.

Whether you complete Duke’s Master of Engineering Management Program at our North Carolina campus or via our innovative distance option, you take the same classes and earn the same degree.
