An MBA is a useful degree for an engineer who aspires to advance his/her career within a corporation, or who wants to open a consulting business or a startup company. Learning how to solve different business problems and understanding marketing and management related issues are some key skills an MBA degree can teach you. Having already obtained a technical degree, an MBA supplements your education in the wider areas of management that usually include subjects such as finance, marketing, organizational behavior, and management strategy. The Engineering Concentration leverages graduate-level coursework in engineering to fulfill the elective portion of the MBA requirements, and requires engineering design work with a business focus as a part of the capstone. The concentration was tailored to be pursued by current engineering students as part of an accelerated 4+1 program, but is also available to anyone who has already earned a bachelor's degree in engineering or in a related field of study.
