Careers

The MEM Program is designed to provide its students  technological challenges that exist in today’s marketplace. Engineers in today’s world cannot work in isolation, the must be able to speak and interact with marketing, law, and finance. They must understand how businesses operate and function.

Duke’s MEM Program is a unique one year program that combines four business classes in Marketing, Finance, Management and Law with four technical electives. The business classes aretaught in collaboration with Duke’s highly ranked Fuqua School of Business and School of Law. The combination of advanced technical training and a practical business education provide depth and breadth to our graduates so that they can become the future leaders of technology-based organizations. Specifically the Duke MEM Program provides employers with the following benefits:

  • Enables new engineers to consider business issues in their decision making
  • Decreases training time for new engineers
  • Decreases management time spent on new engineers
  • Provides opportunity to preview potential employees through our summer internship program.
