Engineering + MBA

“An MBA degree has been very useful in my career. Combining the logical thought processes, discipline and technology experience developed in an engineering program with the business, financial and organizational knowledge obtained from an MBA is beneficial to both future engineering managers and in general management.”

Mike Bray, President and COO, TNP Enterprises, Inc.

Member , American Society of Mechanical Engineers

Engineering + MBA

"Engineering, itself, is an excellent degree. However, there are many advanced degrees that complement an engineering undergraduate degree. Engineers are typically not business trained...they know the mechanics (the technical side) but do not have a thorough grasp of the financial, accounting, business side. An MBA gives them that. An undergraduate Engineering and MBA is one of the most marketable combinations available.“

Mike J. Meyer, Group Director of Brewing Engineering, and Technology Anheuser Busch Companies, Inc.

UMR BSME 1975
