ANGOLA, Ind. – Trine University's Ketner School of Business is introducing two master level programs that will debut this fall.

The Master of Science in Engineering Management and the Master of Business Administration are designed for professionals who wish to advance their careers. Both are built on Trine's reputation for rigorous academics and strong performance of its engineering and business schools.

"Each of these one-year programs was developed to deliver return on investment for engineering and business professionals who are eager to develop their skills and marketability," said Scott Fergusson, dean of the Ketner School. "Both programs will be taught by professionals with exceptional industry experience."

Trine University is seeking accreditation for the Master of Science in Engineering Management and the Masters of Business Administration through the Higher Learning Commission (www.hlcommission.org).

Master of Science in Engineering Management

The Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) is tailored to engineers of all disciplines who are taking on more responsibilities, such as making presentations to company executives and customers, developing product strategies or leading a team. The program will help engineers gain mastery of corporate culture, leadership, negotiations and politics.

The MSEM will feature classes in business ethics, public speaking and decision-making geared toward technical professionals. Product development and innovation classes taught by faculty from the Ketner School and the Allen School of Engineering & Technology are also included.

The accelerated program will be offered on Trine's main campus in Angola and at its branch campuses located throughout Indiana and in Michigan.

Applications are being accepted for the fall cohort that is scheduled to begin in August. The MSEM requires an undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline from an accredited institution. The admission process requires a statement of purpose from the applicant and two to four years of professional experience. To apply, visit trine.edu/apply.

Master of Business Administration

The new master's program is defined by an intense focus on capital markets, the finance of operations and expansion, and the global trade and currency markets. Students will be taught the critical decision-making skills that corporate managers use in negotiations, communications, public relations and ethics.

The program is global in both student population and perspective as many students are from Asia and the Middle East. In addition, the program has permanent teaching faculty from China to provide insight and expertise on international markets. This provides networking opportunities for candidates looking to bring Western finance knowledge to growing markets.

The MBA will be offered on Trine's main campus and at select branch campuses. Applications are being accepted for the fall cohort that is scheduled to begin in August. An undergraduate degree from an accredited institution is required (a math emphasis is strongly recommended). The admission process also requires a statement of purpose from the applicant.
