MSEOM Cohort Program for Working Professionals

The Master of Science in Engineering & Operations Management Cohort program has been designed for the technical professional who aspire or currently hold engineering, project management, and operations management positions in both the manufacturing and service sectors. This program is being offered in a "cohort" format for busy working professionals with a minimum of 2 years of full time work experience.  The cohort students follow the same set schedule and meet one day a week for five or seven weeks per course enabling them to complete the degree in 23 months.  This format helps the professional balance graduate school with the demands of family, work, and other responsibilities.  Students who complete the cohort curriculum also receive a Graduate Certificate in Lean Six Sigma.
