What can the combination of a Master of Engineering and an MBA do for you?

The Master of Engineering is a professional degree, designed to give engineers more advanced engineering skills along with teamwork and communication skills that enable them to move into engineering careers at a higher level. The College of Engineering offers master’s degrees in 15 fields, with the flexibility to include coursework in other scientific and technical fields.

The MBA adds knowledge and skill in all the business functions along with a general management perspective. The combination of these degrees prepares engineers to advance through product development and engineering management roles to higher levels of business leadership.

Our alumni from the MEng/MBA Sequential Degree Program develop careers in a wide range of industries including engineering, technology and traditional MBA career paths such as consulting, general management, and finance. Some of our alumni believe their MEng/MBA degree combination has put them on the fast track to advance to higher levels with greater business responsibility in corporate technology companies. Others have put the knowledge and skills they gained through their program into highly successful entrepreneurial ventures. Cornell has multiple resources for entrepreneurship, with rich resources for alumni and students through Entrepreneurship@Cornell.The MEng/MBA is a sequential degree program. Students complete their MEng degree in the first year. Then they join the One-Year MBA class for three semesters (Summer, Fall, and Spring) of coursework at Johnson.
