M.S. in Petroleum Engineering / MBA

Students who hold both an MBA as well as an MS in Engineering degree set themselves apart from many when entering the competitive marketplace upon graduation. Not only can they speak the technical lingo, they can also understand the overarching strategy and operational goals while keeping in mind the managerial/leadership role.
There are many ways to determine if the MS / MBA is the right path for you: 
  • Does your job (or prospective job) involve managing or forecasting a budget?
  • Do you want to change career paths completely? 
  • Do you want to move into a managerial (or higher) position within your existing company? Or manage your own operation? 
The University of Wyoming M.S. in Engineering / MBA dual degree can be earned in two years in any department in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Students spend one year (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters) in the MBA program completing the core curriculum, the summer experiential project, and the outdoor leadership course.  An additional year is spent taking M.S. Engineering courses in the chosen engineering discipline as well as the MBA Capstone course (3 credits). Students successfully completing this program will earn a Master of Science in Engineering degree and a Master of Business Administration degree.
The applicant must notify both Colleges that he or she is applying for the joint MS in Engineering/MBA program, and must be admitted by each College to participate. To remain in the dual degree program, the student must comply with the minimum performance standards of both the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the College of Business as well as all graduate regulations outlined by the University of Wyoming. 

"In my time here in the MS/MBA Program at UW, I have learned how to leverage my technical skills with a more in-depth knowledge of how business works. The mix of classroom instruction along with hands-on consulting projects has a created a well-rounded learning environment that facilitates both professional and character development."
