Quality and Manufacturing Management - Doctorate
Industry is striving for a competitive edge through quality, cost, speed, and flexibility applying concepts such as product realization, e-business, lean operations, and lean manufacturing. Corporations are streamlining, asking not for specialists, but for professionals with the ability to integrate, communicate, and work across traditional boundaries. Industry needs leaders who understand the to total business enterprise: women and men who can think broadly as business people, engineers, and technologists, and who have the skills needed to bring new product and services to the marketplace in the most cost efficient way possible.

Departing from traditional patterns in the academic world, Penn State’s MMM degree program was developed while listening to the voice of industry. The resulting program synthesizes the best thinking of one the country’s leading engineering colleges with one of America’s top business schools. The program is the winner of the CASA/SME University LEAD Award for its integration of principles and skills across the operations enterprise of manufacturing and operations, and an ideal educational choice for those looking toward a management career in industry.
