Corporate Advisory Board

More than a decade ago, leaders of companies conceived the idea to create the Master of Engineering and Management (MEM) degree to meet workplace needs for technical talent with business management acumen. Many of our corporate partners through the years have joined MEM’s Corporate Advisory Board, which provides ongoing business input. They continually hone the curriculum to ensure that the program stays relevant, leading-edge, and develops students who can quickly meet employers’ current needs—and grow into leadership positions.
 
Many of our Corporate Advisory Board members also serve as coaches to MEM students in the area of presentation skills and through a Professional Skills Seminar Series.
 
Corporate Advisory Board members bring insight and experience from a broad spectrum of fields. If you’d like to learn about getting involved, please contact us.
