Studies have found the most successful companies are managed by people with experience in the core business of the company. In the case of technology-based companies, this means engineers or technically oriented individuals. Moreover, in today's economy, its vital that companies are managed by technically oriented people who can be directly involved in the decision-making processes of their businesses. In order for this to happen, managers must be trained in both the managerial and technical aspects of their companies. A graduate degree in engineering management will expand your interdisciplinary capabilities, help you solve problems using various engineering skills, and update your engineering and technical communication skills for the competitive job market. An accelerated option also is available at MSOE.
