PURDUE INDIANA MSE MBA Purdue University Powered By Docstoc

You enjoy your career in engineering and know you have the potential to be great. You
also know that to take your career to the next level you need not only cutting-edge
engineering skills; you need the business skills and credentials that can only be obtained
from an elite business school.

Thanks to a unique partnership between the Purdue University College of Engineering
and the Indiana University Kelley School of Business, high-caliber engineers like you
are able to earn a Master of Science in Engineering and an MBA in fewer credit hours
together than it would take to earn each separately. You will not only develop the ex-
cellent engineering and business skills you need, you will also gain the credibility that
comes with earning graduate degrees from TWO highly ranked programs. And thanks
to the online format of both programs, you won’t have to quit your job.

Through our rigorous core curricula and innovative bridge courses, Purdue and Kelley
provide you with the technical foundation you need in both engineering and business
while allowing you to customize your education to meet your unique goals. You will
learn from the same renowned faculty who teach in Purdue and Kelley’s highly-ranked
campus programs while you continue your career.
History and Mission
Since 2004 the mission of the dual MSE-MBA program between Purdue University’s
Engineering Professional Education (EPE) and Indiana University’s Kelley Direct
MBA has been to provide quality distance education to working professional engineers.
Purdue and IU are among the first research universities nationally to make available
specialized graduate programs entirely through distance education. The faculty at both
universities has been teaching in our online programs for over a decade, so they under-
stand the best way to deliver course material online.
Curriculum Overview
The goal of this dual program is to provide high quality graduate-level distance educa-
tion to working professional engineers located anywhere in the world.

The Purdue-Kelley dual MSE-MBA program offers you a unique opportunity to gain
additional technical expertise and learn management skills to complement your existing
knowledge and capabilities.

You earn two degrees in a total of 60 credit hours, compared to 81 credit hours if you
earned each degree separately.

The dual program consists of three parts:
● technical/engineering
● a bridge between technical and business courses
● business management courses

This gradual progression from engineering into management expands your knowledge
and understanding of the technical/ management challenges in industry while develop-
ing individual and team skills required for launching innovative strategies that advance
the goals of your company.
Purdue MSE/MS Dual Degree Course
Engineering Specialization Area: 12 credits from an engineering specialization area. You
may choose the same area as your bachelor’s degree or the area you’re currently work-
ing in or wish to pursue in the future. You will take these 12 credits at the beginning of
your dual program studies. Please see Purdue Engineering course offerings.

Bridge Course Area: 12 credits in engineering/technical management. These courses
will transition your studies from engineering into the management curriculum. You will
choose one Purdue technical course in 3 of the following 4 areas:

- Economics
- Operations
- Information Technology
- Quantitative Analysis.

The fourth bridge area must be satisfied by taking a Kelley business course. One of the
following courses will satisfy this requirement:

C530 Economics for Managers for the Economics requirement
C580 Operations Management for the Operations area
C522 Information Technology for Managers Part 1 for the Information Technology area
C520 Quantitative Analysis for the Quantitative Analysis area
MSE/MS bridge course options are shown in Table 1 below:
