Why an MBA is the preferred degree for engineers

An MBA engineering degree — or any MBA that caters to engineers — teaches students the key elements of running, operating and leading a business, while also leveraging the engineering savvy of the student. This combination of tech and business skills has proven to be successful for various professionals, including Fortune 500 CEOs like Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, and Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft — both of whom did their undergraduate studies in engineering and later went back to earn their MBA.

An MBA uniquely equips engineers to shift into a wide range of roles where they may manage teams, pitch to stakeholders and/or lead strategic initiatives. In addition to gaining business skills, engineers in MBA programs often benefit from career services support and the connections with other engineers and manager- and director-level business professionals from various industries.

The growing demand for MBAs

Companies seek out MBAs with engineering backgrounds because they know they’re getting candidates with both the technical and soft skills needed to make an impact and bring about change. Most engineers have extensive quantitative and problem-solving skills, and an MBA rounds them out with the teamwork, leadership, communication and strategic planning skills that organizations are seeking in directors, managers and team leaders.
