Engineers have strong analytical and strategic skills. They are able to examine complex issues from all angles. Engineers posses both quantitative and qualitative skill sets that give them a good start when they enter the workforce. Graduates of MBA programs are typically known for their effective communication skills, networking know-how, their strategic research and analysis abilities, and best practice knowledge in leadership roles. Combining these two skill sets will most certainly make the graduates of this program stand out in the workforce. Your engineering background provides the technical knowledge that will allow you to work on product engineering and research development. Combined with your MBA, you can act as a bridge between technical experts and senior management. In a way, it is a training that allows you to speak two languages (technical and business) thus adding value to your team and to you as an individual employee.
