Event Agenda:
  • 7:00pm - 7:45pm School program overviews followed by a panel with alumni
  • 7:45pm - 8:30pm Each school will concurrently host their own program session 
Cornell University will highlight our sequential degree program which is designed for students who are interested in careers that integrate academic studies in engineering and technology and include the professional fields of consulting, general management, and finance. Together both programs will provide information about the curriculum, experience, and opportunities available to students who earn an MEng/MBA.

Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences offer a joint degree program which confers an MBA from HBS and a Master of Science (MS) in Engineering Sciences from SEAS. The program is completed in four semesters over two years, augmented by summer and January term coursework amounting to three-quarters of a fifth semester. Designed to train future leaders of technology ventures, the MS/MBA: Engineering Sciences Program will provide a strong foundation in general management, build design skills, and extend students’ understanding of engineering.

Kellogg will showcase the MMM Program, where students earn a MBA from Kellogg and a Master of Science in Design Innovation from the Segal Design Institute at the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University. The degree focuses on the intersections of business, design, technology and innovation. They will also discuss their new MBAi Program, which is a joint degree between Kellogg and the McCormick School of Engineering. It offers a unique/blended approach to the teaching of business innovation and the complex technologies that drive it forward.

The University of Michigan will highlight the Tauber Institute for Global OperationsThe Tauber Institute for Global Operations is a joint venture between the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business and the College of Engineering, and many industry partners to facilitate cross-disciplinary education in global operations management. Well-designed and managed paid team projects form the cornerstone of the Tauber Institute experience and allow students to apply their knowledge to real-world settings.  An undergraduate degree in engineering is not required for admission.   

MIT will showcase the LGO Program, a dual-degree program in which students can earn their MBA and MS in Engineering. The two-year curriculum features internships at elite partner companies and fellowship opportunities for each admitted student. MIT LGO students develop management expertise and technical abilities as joint student in one of eight departments within the MIT School of Engineering and the MBA Program at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Graduates take leadership positions in global companies and small high-tech startups, and anything in between.
