Graduates of the MBA & E program will be prepared to assume leadership positions in industrial planning, venture capital, and engineering management; and as senior managers in roles requiring both technical and business acumen.
The 45 credit hour program is taught in an interactive manner by faculty who are leaders in their fields with a wealth of practical experience; it also combines core business courses and a core of engineering courses:
Prerequisites [not required for admission] include: Basic Statistics for Business & Economics (ECO 401), Financial Reporting for Managers and Investors (GBUS 401), and Principles of Economics (ECO 001).
The program is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in engineering.
