Go to a college that has a business school and get an undergraduate degree in business management. You could minor in engineering.

Hello, Isan. The answer to your question depends upon what you really are interested in doing for a career. Most Business Majors do not get involved in the technical aspects of engineering. They obtain a Business Degree and proceed with their career. I assume from your question that you are interested in a business career with a strong relationship to some branch of engineering, like mechanical or computer engineering. If this is the case, I suggest that you get your undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline, perhaps with a Business Minor. Work a few years in an entry-level position in the Engineering Field to obtain some practical knowledge. You can then pursue a Masters in Business (MBA) to hone your business skills. There are many MBA programs and many of them are tailored for working people, with night and weekend classes.

Good luck, Pete Sturtevant, P.E.
