After I graduated with a degree in engineering, I worked for several years in the U.S. Navy, then returned to school for my master’s of business administration (MBA) and my doctorate in law (JD). One should separate oneself by earning a graduate degree. An MBA goes hand in hand with an engineering bachelor’s for anyone who will be working for an engineering corporation. More than anything, know business management in order to be successful. Managing people is the key to success in a business.
