I knew that wanted to pursue a master’s degree after undergrad. I originally thought about continuing my education with a MBA degree. However, I also wanted to be able to broaden my knowledge in engineering. It was not until my friend introduced me to Purdue’s Master of Engineering Management Program that I found the degree I was seeking.
As a graduate student in Purdue MEM, I have been able to take a wide range of courses from the Krannert School of Management (e.g. Marketing Management, Strategic Management) and the College of Engineering (e.g. Safety Engineering, Applied Ergonomics). However, one of the most important aspects of my learning came in the form of leadership opportunities available to me because I was a Purdue MEM student.
