About the Program

As the world becomes increasingly more technical, businesses are seeking leaders with both engineering skills and management know-how. Specifically designed by company leaders to fill a void in their organizations, our one-year program combines the problem-solving rigor of the Case School of Engineering and the organizational insight of the Weatherhead School of Management. We help engineers make an immediate impact in any company’s operations—including consulting, project management, business development, technical sales, supply-chain management and more.

What to Expect

Our 12-month program—designed for individuals with engineering degrees—will train you to understand critical functional areas in business while leveraging the problem-solving skills inherent in engineering. In 36 credit hours split across three semesters (or longer through a flexible part-time option), you’ll take 10 core courses and complete your remaining credit hours taken in whatever upper-level engineering or management classes interest you most. 

A few of the core courses you’ll take—taught by experts in their fields—include:

  • Leadership Assessment and Development
  • Accounting/Finance and Engineering Economics
  • Applied Statistics for Decision Support in Data Science
  • Understanding People and Change in Organizations
  • Product and Process Design, Development, and Delivery
  • Engineering Entrepreneurship
"What I love about [CWRU] is just the people around—everyone aspires to be the best in whatever industry they’re trying to go into. I also like how collaborative everyone is—the student body, the faculty; there’s always a support system.”
