Hi All

I have been working in the power sector for the past 4 years.
I work at a Fortune 500 company in a very small country in the pacific.

One of my colleagues suggested that i should look into doing a MBA.
I have been preparing for the GMAT for some time but lacking the motivation because
i am not sure what my options would be post MBA.
I know for sure that I don't want to do technical work for the rest of my life and would like to
influence the renewables market in the future.

Can Engineers who have done a MBA please share their stories and what options are available to them in the market?

Energy engineering is a broad field of engineering that encapsulates energy management, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and environmental maintenance. Not only must energy engineers be familiar with renewable energy, they must also know about oil and natural-gas energies. Energy engineering is an interdisciplinary collaboration between all of our energy technologies.

I am currently going into my 3rd year of studying energy engineering in the Penn State Earth and Mineral Sciences College, the first American college to offer the program. I am also part of the Society of Energy Engineers.

Energy is the only factor which differentiate the difference between a Developed country and a Developing country and yes INDIA is a developing country there is shortage of Coal and Water to generate Energy and the demand is here for Solar and Renewable Sources . Grab this Opportunity if found in any NITs or IITs .
basically it is an interdisciplinary course of ME/EE/CHE .
But , if belonged to EE then it is a super discipline to do . ME/CHE can avoid because it is EE oriented Discipline and they would have to learn the power system aspects but EE have to learn some basics of ME/CHE but 80 % is EE portion .
If any one can removed the topics like HVDC , FACTS them the rest syllabus of ENERGY ENGINEERING is the power system syllabus having topics RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES , HEAT EX -CHANGERS , FOSSIL DECOMPOSITION , ENERGY AUDITING .

so conclusion is here -
power system mean- Generation , transmission and protection
enery system mean- Generation , transmission and Utilization .

all the best Go for - IIT-B , IIT-D , NIT-TIRCHY , NIT-J etc . All the best

You might try looking on LinkedIn for engineers who have completed MBAs to see what they're doing now, and potentially message a few of them for advice. You never know what connections you might make. Also, some MBA websites have lists of alumni (or alumni spotlights) that you could look through to see if you can find any engineers to contact for advice. Those routes may get you better results than on this forum.
