Coursework for the MMM, one of only a handful of manufacturing-focused management programs in the country, is being delivered online and in two, ten-hour weekend campus visits per semester, plus a three-day summer residency for plant visits. The 32-credit program can be completed in one year of full-time study or twenty-two months of part-time study.
“It can be a challenge for any working adult to pursue a master’s degree, and manufacturing professionals have the additional concerns of scheduling around shift work and inflexible production schedules,” said Dr. Diane Parente, the Samuel A. and Elizabeth B. Breene Professor of Management and co-director of the program. “Converting the program to a combination of online and weekend study makes the benefits of advanced education accessible to a larger number of students.”
