Online Program Extension Options

We provide you guidance in balancing the demands of graduate work with career and family

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

We encourage all students to discuss personal programming challenges so that we may provide options to ensure a successful and meaningful experience.
