Engineering Management Program Overview

Ranked #1 by U.S. News & World Report, Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals online Engineering Management program prepares you to lead with confidence. The curriculum provides engineering professionals the opportunity to build competencies in an array of technical and managerial positions. While management courses serve as the core of the program, you have the opportunity to choose which specialty track aligns with your interests and goals.

I liked that I could complete most, if not all of the desired classes online. It gave me a lot more flexibility. I also liked that the Engineering Management curriculum was both a mix of technical and managerial coursework.
