Executive Master’s Degree Program

How many times have you wanted to go back to school for your master’s degree, only to tell yourself that it was impossible with your work and personal obligations? You knew there had to be a way, but it just seemed out of reach.

The executive master’s degree in SEM is primarily for working professionals like you with at least three years of professional experience who can enroll only in classes offered late Fridays and on Saturdays. With this program, you can access the world-class faculty at UT Dallas and take advantage of the hands-on learning experiences this degree has to offer. Previous program candidates have asked questions such as:

Is the schedule flexible?

Classes in the executive education format are held on alternate Friday evenings and on Saturdays, in four-hour sessions. Ten sessions are needed in a semester to complete a course.

What will I learn?

The broad curriculum of classes range from systems architecture and design to business finance and strategic leadership.

Who are the faculty?

Faculty for the primary SEM courses are drawn from both the engineering and management schools, other UT Dallas schools and industry leaders with expertise in specific fields.

Who will I be taking classes with in the Executive format of the SEM program?

You will be taking classes with a cohort of local professionals working with major corporations in the DFW area, with typically 3+ years of professional work experience and backgrounds in engineering or physical sciences.

What other programmatic options are available to me?

Certificates in SEM, which require only 12 credit hours, also are offered in an executive education, four-hour format. Learn more about certificates.
