Good Engineering AND Business school?

<p>i want to double major in busines and electrical engineering... anyone have good ideas for schools? i thought columbia or UMICH-ann arbor.... im not sure if they allow double majors... suggestions?</p>

<p>Purdue has both a really good business and engineering program. I think ee is top 5 in nation.</p>

<p>Georgia Tech</p>

<p>1234567</p>

<p>Mit</p>

<p>MIT is out of my league... plus i couldnt even IMAGINE double majoring in business and engineering at MIT.... instant death</p>

<p>berkely seems like a good canidate... so does carnegie mellon(i think)..</p>

<p>im only really going on what US News says here... though all do sound like good matches... U of illinois came up in a top 3 business section(forget which) on US News... and from what ive heard its good with engineering....
but then i read somewhere it really isnt a good college =/..</p>

<p>maybe someone could rank in their opinion which of the following schools have the best combined business/engineering programs...</p>

<p>columbia
UMICH-ann arbor
berkely
duke(i have no idea how their academics are)
rice(again..i have no idea how their academics are)
carnegie mellon
cornell(i have no idea how their business is but its my dream school for engineering... maybe someone else has more insight?)
other?</p>

<p>im very interest in getting graduate degrees so a somewhat prestigous school would be best.</p>

<p>Georgia Tech is my suggestion, but I don't really know your stats. That list looks good. Maybe Clemson in SC & Virginia Tech.</p>

<p>CMU. Nicer city/neighborhood. Midsized. Alot of publicity lately. Carnegie's name is everywhere. Tepper School, Heinz School, and Bill Gate's Engineering. Kids there would rather get a "C" at CMU than an "A" at MIT. Alot of recruiters-recruiting.</p>

<p>At Cornell, I don't think they allow you to double major in business AND engineering. There are programs, however, that allow you to get an MBA and a master of Engineering, but is extremely competetive (2 years after you graduate from here). In general, engineering takes a lot of time. However, you could always take business classes along with engineering, and there are plenty of recruiters here for engineers to fill all sorts of jobs. Individually, business AND engineering are strong here, but I'm not sure how much time you would have to combine both. Most people do engineering undergraduate, work for a few years, then go to business school.</p>

<p>Look at the M&T program at UPenn (management and technology) and the IBE program at Lehigh (integrated business and engineering).</p>

<p>I second the Lehigh program.</p>

<p>mit doesn't allow double majors anyways... I dont think.</p>

<p>MIT doesn't allow double-majors, but they do allow double-bachelor's degrees. And not just for undergrad. They also allow double-master's degrees. </p>

<p>And I would disagree that it's instant death. To be honest, it's comparable to just getting a single engineering degree at MIT. To be honest, management classes at MIT are significantly easier than engineering classes at MIT. If you can survive the engineering classes, the extra management classes are a walk in the park.</p>

<p>If you cant get into MIT...probably Berkeley?? (I am applying there). 3rd place in the College of Engineering and I dont know about Business....</p>

<p>To completely NOT answer the question - why do you want to major in business undergrad, with engineering? Engin. is hard enough - if you're not a workaholic masocist, you'll probably want to take five years at it. Why not get the engineering degree, work, and have your company pay for your MBA? Undergrad business won't do much for you - the engineering will get you the job. You would be better off spending the extra time undergrad doing research and internships (which would greatly help becoming employed upon graduation). </p>

<p>Just my two cents - but I don't put much (read: any) stock in business majors as being worth much of anything. If you want business, go for the MBA. </p>

<p>If you want graduate school - well, what type of grad school? Most engineering companies will pick up the tab for a master's, but it'll have to be a night programme. If you want law or med, don't do engin. undergrad.</p>
