This Engineering Management (EM) program is designed to prepare professionals for the Qatari industrial world at levels higher than those requiring an undergraduate degree, and at the same time it will prepare them for doing advanced research.

The program is fundamentally different from MBAs. MBA programs are designed to help prepare people for management roles while focusing on general business and managerial aspects rather than leveraging the technical background. However, in today's world, corporations also demand managers with strong technical backgrounds. The structure of the EM program is unique as it helps the engineers become a more effective technical specialist and strengthens its ability to lead people and projects.

As a specialist, the engineer becomes more effective through understanding how his or her engineering skills can best support the goals of the organization and its customers. In addition, the trained engineering manager becomes uniquely qualified for two types of positions: management of technical functions and the management of broader functions in the high-technology enterprise. The world trend in graduate education suggests that MBA and EM programs are not supplementary but complementary to each other. There are many universities in the Gulf Region and around the globe offer both programs separately.
