The curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for their careers in technology, transitioning from bench-top engineers to technology managers and positions of leadership. While at Dartmouth (the program length is 15 months), students will deepen their technical knowledge in engineering while broadening their business understanding with courses taught by faculty from the Tuck School of Business. For those who are considering broadening their work possibilities, or looking for an alternative to a MS degree please come to the information session.

All Smith College graduates that are admitted to the MEM program are eligible for a $10,000 scholarship in addition to need-based financial aid.

The decision to attend a graduate or professional school and when to attend are questions with answers which are unique for each individual. Use these pages to advise and assist you when deciding upon you own path.

Deciding to Apply

There is no “timeline” of when or if one is supposed to attend a post-Smith education. For many, the reason to attend a graduate program is to satisfy a personal journey:

  • it is a subject that one purely wants to study in depth as a scholar, or
  • it is needed for employment or advancement in a particular career field.

When your reason to attend a graduate program has motivated you, begin to evaluate your credentials and explore the various graduate programs. Consult with others who can assist you in your endeavor:

  • Speak with faculty who can advise you on programs in your field of interest
  • Meet with a Lazarus Center advisor to help coordinate the logistics of your application
  • Network with Smith alums and other professionals in the field who can share their personal experiences
  • Contact admission representatives of your selected graduate programs about their programs.

Your decision to attend graduate school should be carefully planned and strategically crafted.
