EXCLUSIVELY FOR BS MATERIALS SCIENCE & ENGINEERING MAJORS
School of Materials Science and Engineering July, 2012
In partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology (GIT) Scheller College of Business, the School of Materials Science & Engineering is pleased to offer to its majors the MSE Business Option Program (BOP). The set of four required management (MGT) courses to complete the BOP are:
|Finance and Investments ||MGT 3078 ||3 hours|
|Accounting for Decision Making ||MGT 3000 ||3 hours|
|Principles of Management||MGT 3150 ||3 hours|
|International Business || MGT 3660 ||3 hours|
|Total Required for Completion ||12 hours|
A maximum of five credit hours of the BOP courses can also be applied as “Free Electives” toward completion of the MSE degree. Participating MSE majors are only required to be enrolled and in “good standing” with the GIT Registrar. Students qualified by GPA to participate in the Georgia Tech-Lorraine, France Program are encouraged to take up to two of the specified four MGT courses at the French campus. If they do, they will receive a pre-paid $500 MSE scholarship for each course taken (maximum of $1000 total scholarship funding). For any completed GT-L course in which less than a “C” grade is obtained, the student recipient will be required by agreement (pg. 3) to reimburse the School the $500 received for that particular course. This scholarship is offered to help defray expenses of spending a semester at GT-Lorraine, and in support of the GIT strategy of encouraging students to gain international study and cultural experiences.
In addition to the above MGT courses, students are encouraged, but not required, to take one or more of the courses listed below to enhance the value of the base MSE BOP (the courses can also be used to help fulfill the MSE degree’s Social Science Elective requirements):
|Industrial Organization||ECON 4340 ||3 hours|

|Industrial/Organization Psychology||PSYC 2220 ||3 hour|
