The Executive Master of Engineering Management program offers a summer Industry tour to study Engineering Management styles in Asia. For 10 years we offered only the China tour (Shanghai Suzhou). In 2019 we added a Japan (Tokyo) Industry tour for a one-week industry tour including the Tokyo Stock exchange and culturally-significant sites. The Japan tour has become popular with students and from 2021 we propose to offer only the Japan tour.
The tour typically encompasses visits to 6-8 companies. Spouses are welcome to travel with students for an extra fee. The tour also includes a day of cultural site visits. Often small business and industry leaders from throughout Minnesota join the tour and travel with students through the Minnesota Department of Trade.
St. Cloud State University’s Engineering Management Programs are certified by the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM). ASEM is the lead society for Engineering Management Program certification worldwide.
