Duke MEM Online Curriculum

Courses

Elective Tracks

Students can specialize in their degrees by selecting an Elective Track. Each track gives a student command of knowledge in a given specialty:

Residencies

MEM Online students also complete three weeklong residences at Duke—and have the option of attending classes in-person at Duke at any time.

The opportunities to interact with Duke Engineering Management students in our campus program include physical class attendance, project collaboration, and class assignment partnering through teleconferencing, student forums and other media alternatives.

Extending the Program and Other Options

Students may take courses in any order and may extend the program beyond two years

Our staff is committed to supporting Duke MEM Online students throughout their course of study.

We encourage all students to discuss personal programming challenges to provide options to ensure a successful and meaningful experience. In addition, we allow online students to extend the program on a case-by-case basis.

Below are two examples of scenarios that would allow a student to complete the program in more than two years. Note: The student must have completed three courses to complete the Mid-Program Residency at Duke.

Note well: Not all courses are offered every semester. The student in these examples should meet with their advisor and must plan carefully.

Completing in 3 Years

In this example, a student doubles up on courses in the final year—but this can be completed in any semester.
