“As careers in the technology sector grow in number, it's more important than ever for engineers to step out of our comfort zone and familiarize ourselves with the business side. The MS in Engineering Management program helped me to become the bridge between the technical and corporate teams in my organization and later land an exciting consulting role within Google.”
