Educational / Re: Masters in Engineering or MBA?
« on: November 01, 2012, 07:50:06 PM »
I am a civil engineer I too was face with this very diverging road (no pun intended). I recently finished my MBA. The reason I chose the MBA route was because I  know of a few people who have advanced degrees in in civil engineering. While they were taking the courses, I realized that most of the theory they learned was never applied in the real world. The classes that had relevance to their line of work, didn't teach them anything that I didn't know or couldn't figure out on my own. So, I felt I wouldn't get much out of a masters in civil. I also had in interest in Finance  so it was an easy road to take.

What I can advise you is to talk to as many people as possible before you make your decision. A good find people in industries that you want to align yourself and ask them what would be the best route to take.

Given the investment that you will be making, it is a very good idea to have a comprehensive insights from as many people as possible.
I hope this helps.

All the best.
