How long does it take to become an engineering manager?


<p>I was wondering how much schooling is required for someone who wants to get into management in engineering. My guess is that it will be 6 (4 years undergrad, 2 years MBA), but am I missing something?</p>

<p>Also, what are the industries in which:</p>

<li>Management is in high demand.</li>
<li>Are paid most (I know its superficial, but I’m jw)</li>

<p>thanks a lot!</p>

<p>The only thing I can tell you is that MBA programs want to see at least 2 years of work experience usually. There are exceptions, but before you can get into an MBA program you will need to have had a job. But yes, 4 (or 5) years undergrad then 2 to finish a full time MBA.</p>

<p>It would take some time.
You would probably need an MBA and experience.</p>

<p>Maybe....10 to 12 years after earning your B.S. (minimum)</p>

<p>its not going to happen in your 20s though, i'm mostly sure.</p>
