Business Management

2016 BMC Group Picture

The Business Management Course, sponsored by Halliburton, is designed to offer engineering undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills associated with business acumen to complement their technical skills.

Benefits of the business management course include:

  • Acquire unique experience of applying business principles to their technical discipline, which is beneficial to themselves and employers
  • Learn valuable business principles essential to a corporate environment
  • Receive a physical certificate after completion at the end of the program (this program/course will not appear on the student's transcript)

Student Testimonials

Finance – “Finance is what piqued my interest the most and when I eventually get my MBA I plan on emphasizing finance courses and electives.

Management Principles – “Definitely one of the most valuable sessions in the program. The case work we did was very applicable and helped cement the concepts.

Management Communications – “This was one of the greatest lectures I have had in a while. I surely think this lecture should be longer because people skills and communication are as important as all the business/engineering knowledge.

Marketing Principles – “Marketing is definitely a great class for engineer students. Engineers can build stuff, but not selling them.


Current fulltime Texas A&M engineering students with junior, senior or graduate level classification are eligible to apply for the Business Management Course for engineering students.

Through the generous support of Halliburton, the program is offered to students at the reduced price of $600 per student with a maximum enrollment of 70 students. Space is limited, therefore we encourage students to apply early.
