The MBET advantage

MBET is very different from a general business degree or an MBA. The program has been designed specifically to fill a market need for individuals with the business knowledge base and experience needed to move ideas and innovations into commercial practice.

Many who aren’t familiar with the MBET program are impressed with [MBET graduates]. The degree differentiates us from MBA students. Our insights into facility operations, innovation, leadership, and entrepreneurship really demonstrate the depth of the MBET experience.
