About the Program
Industrial Management students combine rigorous courses from science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with the Krannert management core to produce strong analytic and technical skills with a business mindset. A dedication to life-long learning – new processes, new technologies, new ways of managing talent and resources – is a hallmark of an Industrial Management major. Specialties range from supply chain management to financial engineering to science.
Industrial Management students are multi-talented. With a specialized business focus, students can forecast company growth and talk numbers in the board room as well as solve logistical problems in business operations. This flexibility has allowed Industrial Management majors to enjoy faster upward mobility within organizations than most other business majors.
Many Industrial Management graduates begin their careers in corporate leadership development rotational programs, where they gain additional business and technical knowledge. Others start their careers as supply chain analysts, strategic sourcing analysts or software business analysts.
Students may choose from the following concentrations: Analytical Consulting, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Financial Engineering, Management Information Systems, Manufacturing and Service Operations Management, Operations & Supply Chain Management, Quantitative Methods, Statistics and Science (Biology, Chemistry, Math, Physics, and Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences).
