A Degree of Difference


The Executive Master's in Technology Management (EMTM) – a multidisciplinary master's degree program offered by Penn Engineering – is a unique alternative to traditional MBA, EMBA and MSE programs. The first of its kind, established in 1988, EMTM prepares leaders for a fast-moving global economy where the ability to manage advances in science and technology in the context of strategic business goals is critical to innovation, competition and success.

The EMTM Advantage: Technology + Business

Classes are taught by the faculty of Penn Engineering and Wharton, as well as by experienced entrepreneurs and successful leaders from industry. Graduates earn an MSE from Penn Engineering.
