Master of Engineering Management vs. MBA

It’s important to be fully informed when making a decision about which course you’re going to study. A Master of Business Administration (MBA) is our most popular course for its flexibility and diverse career outcomes, but if you’re already working in engineering (or want to), a Master of Engineering Management (MEM) – which has many units in common with the MBA – might be a better investment.

Here are some key takeaways from our comparison:

  • Both degrees are 100% online, and cost per unit is the same
  • The MBA offers a broad, interdisciplinary approach, whereas the MEM focuses on specifics within the engineering sector
  • The MBA is recognised worldwide, yet the MEM features some units that meet continued professional development (CPD) requirements with Engineers Australia.
  • Both Masters degrees open up a world of career possibilities and job opportunities.
