Masters in Engineering Management is largely offered in America. There are 3–4 options in Canada and a few in Australia. While graduating from a good university is always important, for an MEM degree, graduating from a top 10 university offering the program is critical. I don’t suggest you go to an ordinary American University to pursue an MEM. As long as you go to a top 10 MEM program your prospects are bright.

The MEM degree gives you more of a specialised skill set, making you a manager who takes decisions backed by sound numbers. In today’s age of data-backed decision making, engineering managers are a supremely valuable asset. If you take the right electives as a part of your program you become an instantly hireable asset. A lot of applicants with significant work experience have started to apply to more specialised programs such as Engineering Management, Supply-Chain Management, Operations Management and Business Analytics instead of an MBA due to the skills these programs impart. Another reason for the popularity of the MEM is the fact that it is a STEM degree in the USA, hence making you eligible for a STEM extension and hence increasing the likelihood for an H1B visa.

Engineering Management graduates take up careers as Business Analysts, Product Managers, Marketing analysts, Product Engineers and Management Consultants among a few. The course is especially ideal for you if you wish to pursue a management degree with less than 3 years of work experience.
