Engineering Business, Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Business involves eight courses with academic and participation elements. The program offers students opportunities to apply the technical aspects of an engineering skill foundation in start-up, consulting, small business, and/or corporate settings. This equips them to manage projects, lead people, make data-driven and market-based decisions, and advance economically sound initiatives.

Students apply to the engineering business program any time from the end of their sophomore year to the first year of their Master of Science in Engineering Management, Operations Research, Data Analytics Engineering, Industrial Engineering, or Construction Management, once accepted into the respective graduate program. To earn the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Business, students must have completed in good standing a BS in engineering and an MS in one of the five master’s programs listed above at Northeastern or a combined BS/MS program in engineering and one of the above programs, respectively. In addition, students must make application and be accepted into the Galante Engineering Business Program and will participate in the Galante Engineering Business Program cocurricular elements. Each of the master’s programs above have their core courses; the engineering business core consists of four specified business-skill courses in the College of Engineering graduate school as listed under the Program Requirements tab. These four courses count as the electives required for each of the programs above.
