YPC Presents an "MBA the ChemE Way" Workshop

If you are like most engineers, you didn't have much time for electives in college - and when you did, economics may not have been your cup of tea. It's no big secret that the majority of engineering majors are better at crunching numbers than developing a business strategy, but a sound understanding of business practices can be invaluable for young engineers entering the work force. Wouldn't it be wonderful if AIChE had some business-related programming at the Annual Meeting for Young Professionals to learn more and add to their skill sets? Your wait is over! This year YPC is sponsoring the brand new "MBA the ChemE Way" programming taught by a star-studded lineup, including Penn State University professors, former and current CEOs, MBAs, AIChE Fellows and others with vast business experience. This programming is geared towards Young Professionals, or anyone who wants to add to their business acumen - students still in Pittsburgh are welcome!
