Industrial Management

Industrial Management grads are in high demand as they have exactly the characteristics employers seek- management know-how with technical skills to implement innovative, cutting-edge business solutions.

This degree combines rigorous courses in math, science, and business to sharpen analytic business and technical skills. A dedication to continually learning — new processes, technology and skills — is the professional brand of an Industrial Management student. Industrial Management specialities ranges from analytical/technical management areas to science and engineering.

Many graduates begin their careers in a corporate rotational program, while others start as consultants, operations analysts, strategic sourcing analysts or software business analysts in companies like General Electric, Cummins, IBM, and PepsiCo.
