MBA, a winning ticket for engineers
Because it is essential for engineers to be fully capable of understanding new technologies while having a cross-cutting vision of all the company’s components, the MBA, an exceptional program, has been set up, leading to valuable a dual competence.
Dual competence in engineering and management is a valuable asset for companies
The accelerating peace of both products and processes innovation (from design to marketing, including maintenance and production) offers higher profitability, growth and competitiveness perspectives for companies. Organizations are naturally looking for engineers whose skills span several fields: engineers who communicate well, who are open-minded, and who are able to manage staff and several complex projects at the same time. These profiles combine engineering training with MBA preparation. A promising duo, especially in the current context!
The MBA is an added value for the professional integration of engineers
The dual engineering-management competence is largely associated with the terms of transversality and versatility which are valuable assets to achieve a differentiated position in niche markets. Pursuing an MBA after an engineering school is particularly rewarding for candidates who wish to carry out ambitious projects (entrepreneurship, career transition, international openness…) or access management positions. MBA training is meant to introduce engineers to all of the managerial dimensions and new challenges of digital transformation. They will be best placed to understand leadership mapping and master internal and external networks of influence.
It remains to be indicated that it is quite possible to prepare an MBA without having to put one’s professional career on hold. There are indeed several MBA formulas such as full-time MBA, part-time MBA and online MBA. Engineers who wish to get an MBA can advance according to their personal and professional constraints while taking advantage of the formula that suits them best.
To reconcile postgraduate studies and professional commitment is now possible with the American Business School’s Online MBA, specially designed to provide engineers with a dual qualification.
