Engineering Excellence ~ Global Education ~ Business Acumen ~ Leadership Experience
The Engineering Global Leadership (EGL) specialization is a unique opportunity for students interested in integrating engineering into a global business environment. EGL students continue at U-M beyond the College of Engineering Honors Program to earn a Masters in an engineering discipline.
EGL prepares students to communicate across engineering and business boundaries, thereby breaking down the barriers to global competitiveness. The focus on Global Operations/Business enhances students' understanding of operations and the corporate environment, including the basics of marketing, accounting, strategy and finance.
The program includes an International Minor for Engineers that exposes students to the language, history and customs of another part of the world. Emphasis is placed on the idea that integration of these disciplines is vital to success in today's global business environment.
Students admitted to the College of Engineering Honors Program who choose a Global Business/Operations focus are eligible to apply for EGL.
