On-Line Professional Master’s Proposal Moves Forward

Primary tabs

The proposed professional master’s degree in manufacturing leadership (PMML) has advanced to the Georgia Board of Regents.  Initial approval was granted to authorize coursework development and preparation of a full proposal, due to the Board in the fall.  Georgia Tech is targeting entry of the first cohort of students in the fall of 2015, pending necessary concurrences and approvals.

The four-quadrant program will feature three core components of manufacturing excellence, business and finance, and leadership.  The fourth quadrant will be technical development in a particular industry.  Forest bioproducts and chemical processing are the two initial specializations available, with others planned in the future.  Associate professors Nagi Gebraeel, ISyE, and Meisha Shofner, MSE, are engaged in developing the curriculum and materials for the degree program this summer. 

RBI is interested in identifying companies that wish to participate in curriculum development and program design.  For further information, please contact Norman Marsolan at
