Introduction

SMU-Lyle's Master of Science in Engineering Management was developed for individuals who have an undergraduate technical degree and are or will be rising through management or starting their own company. The engineering management degree is designed to impart essential knowledge for today and tomorrow’s technology-driven business.

The M.S.E.M. program develops expertise in the traditional graduate business areas – finance and accounting – along with pace-setting, innovative expertise in information engineering, global perspectives, leadership and entrepreneurship. This well-rounded approach prepares individuals for success in the new world of technobusiness with its challenges and opportunities.
