The CurriculumThe Fisher Program in Management and Technology is an innovative, dual degree program through which students pursue degrees from both The Wharton School and Penn Engineering concurrently. As a highly individualized program, the M&T curriculum is tailored to fit each individual's interests. Special "linking" courses (such as Management 237: Management of Technology and Management 235: Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship) are offered to M&T students as a way to integrate and bridge the two disciplines even further.

Penn Engineering—Creating Tomorrow's Technological Leadershttp://www.seas.upenn.edu/
Penn Engineering offers two separate degree options to students: Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) and Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS). Penn Engineering provides students with exceptional programs, research opportunities, and design experiences.
The BSE is a traditional engineering degree and usually the best option for students who wish to be a professional engineer, computer scientist, or pursue a graduate engineering degree. http://www.seas.upenn.edu/under/bse.html
The BAS is designed for students with a deep interest in technology, but who do not wish to be a professional engineer. This degree offers a wider range of course options with breadth in the engineering disciplines, but also in the liberal arts. http://www.seas.upenn.edu/under/bas.html
Integration and Flexibility of the M and the TA key feature of the Fisher Program in Management & Technology is its integrative nature. The primary focus for all students is the mastery of technical and managerial skills needed to deal effectively with the challenges and opportunities in today's complex technological society. Equally important is the balance between the humanities and professional coursework, ensuring a truly liberal arts education. The structure of the joint-degree program gives each student considerable flexibility in meeting these goals.
