Online Mini-MBA™ for Engineers and Technology Managers

Bridging the gap between engineering and business

The Rutgers Online Mini-MBA for Engineers and Technology Managers empowers the technical professional with increased business acumen. Engineers and technology managers who complete the Online Mini-MBA program will be better attuned to customer needs and stakeholder perspectives, will be adept at integrating technical progress with business strategy, and will understand finance, economics, and operations.

Typically, there is no shortage of technical skills in engineering organizations. Yet, there is often a shortage of skills that align technical advancements with business priorities. Beyond the soft skills of communication, teamwork, and leadership, business acumen is about striving for success based on an innate understanding of what the business really needs. The more an engineer can expand his or her expertise to include knowledge of business operations, the more valuable that technology manager will be to the organization.
