Northwestern University's Master of Engineering Management (MEM) Program is excited to recognize its new graduates in their upcoming graduation ceremonies. While some have managed this degree with their full-time jobs, others quit their jobs to be full-time students with the MEM program.  Our students have worked hard to earn the MEM degree, and it is time now to celebrate all of their hard work!
