Graduates in management, however, are finding it difficult to understand the new technologies in manufacturing, quality management, marketing and distribution, and are not equipped with the analytical tools and methods needed to cope with issues related with these technologies. Engineers who have been promoted into management, on the other hand, do not know much about the management of new technology and the people who use it. The days of managers who get along with only technical expertise or purely administrative skills seem to be over and there is a need for a new type of professional.

It provides a core curriculum in:

  • management science
  • finance 
  • economics

The required and elective courses represent a blend of engineering skills and business knowledge needed to develop innovative solutions to complex business problems utilizing the broader vision of system thinking.
