Online MBA/MS in Industrial Engineering

Concurrent degrees allow you to complete two degrees at once, which can help advance your career at a faster rate than if you pursued the two degrees separately. Additionally, having combined business and engineering skills is a great way to show employers just how dedicated you are to your field. Upon graduating with these concurrent degrees, you’ll have the business knowledge needed to lead a technical team.

Does this program mix MBA and engineering curriculum?


No. In this concurrent program, you’ll take a number of courses from each discipline but they will not overlap in content or curriculum. This approach to earning concurrent degrees allows you to gain a broad understanding of business administration and engineering as distinct topics.

What will you learn in this concurrent program?


Your business courses will focus on developing your leadership skills and expanding your knowledge of contemporary management principles, particularly concerning the human side of organizations. You’ll learn strategies for making sound, ethical business decisions that affect people, finances and the economic environment.

In your engineering courses, you’ll study strategies for better connecting people, equipment and information to produce large-scale improvements for sophisticated systems. You’ll learn how to review workflows, develop management control systems, enact quality control procedures and analyze data to create effective processes or products. You can also choose an area of focus, such as:

  • Information and management systems engineering.
  • Logistics and supply chain engineering.

Will my industrial engineering MBA say 'online'?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
