Government/Non-Profit

The City of New York. The National Constitution Center. The Department of Health and Human Services. The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Today, successful organizations in every arena depend on outstanding management and up-to-date information systems. Non-profits and governmental agencies are no exceptions. Approximately 5 percent of current students come to EMTM from non-profit organizations and non-military government agencies; others move into those sectors later in their careers.

Students from these diverse organizations benefit from EMTM’s breadth of technology course electives available through Penn Engineering — with multiple options in areas from IT and Telecommunications, to Biotechnology and Medicine, to Nanotechnology, Photonics, and more. Courses are designed to provide the knowledge needed to understand and effectively manage these and other emerging technologies, not to become technical experts.

Core management courses taught by Wharton faculty equip you with the skills to understand all areas of an organization, including Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Operations, Organizational Design, and Strategy. Beyond EMTM’s core courses, management electives such as Leadership, Negotiations, R&D Management and the Strategic Management of Innovation are popular with students in non-profit and government agencies.
