The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Business is part of the Galante Engineering Business Program. The Galante Engineering Business Program offers a progressive opportunity for engineering students to complement their technical engineering education with business skills. Galante is founded on the values of student engagement and leadership to strengthen interpersonal and professional skills.
The certificate seeks to provide students opportunities to apply the technical aspects of an engineering skill foundation in corporate settings through both academic and programmatic elements. Programmatic elements include workshops, speaker series, site visits, seminars, and other related personal and professional development activities as a connected cohort. These activities equip students to manage projects, lead people, make data-driven and market-based decisions, and advance economically sound initiatives.
The Galante Engineering Business Program can be completed alongside a Master of Science in Engineering Management, Industrial Engineering, Operations Research, Data Analytics Engineering, Civil Engineering with a Concentration in Construction Management, and Chemical Engineering. There are two possible paths to earning the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Business. The first option is to begin an eligible PlusOne program and then apply for the Galante Engineering Business Program. The second option is for those who have completed their BS in engineering in good standing and have been admitted to a master’s program listed above. Please note that the BS in engineering needs to be completed at Northeastern.
The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Business involves 15 semester hours from four courses across three categories. These four courses count as the electives required for each of the master’s programs above. Students need to ensure that these four courses are cross-listed with the master’s program.
