Master program Business Engineering

These days, employers expect people to continue developing their knowledge base long after they get their first degree. Since more companies are organized into matrices instead of along divisional lines, technical and business responsibilities have become inextricably intertwined.

It is this complex environment that the Master's program in Business Engineering was designed to address. Students learn how to examine both the engineering and business aspects of issues, enabling them to assume responsibilities that bridge these two areas of expertise.

The Master's program in Business Engineering is fully accredited. Graduates are eligible to become managers in public service, and have the academic qualifications to pursue a doctorate at a research university.
