Note: The Engineering Route to Business major has been eliminated in the 2012-2014 catalog and is no longer accepting new students. In its place, McCombs School of Business has created a new major, Science & Technology Management. A new Wayfinder page will be created shortly. The spirit of the major is the same as ERB, but it is set up differently. Students no longer pick an engineering block and a business block; instead, they are required to choose from a list of engineering courses and a list of business courses.
The Engineering Route to Business Program (ERB) is a rigorous and challenging degree plan that satisfies industry's demand for technologically savvy graduates who have backgrounds in both engineering and business. In the ERB Program, students take engineering, math, and science classes while working toward a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. ERB students develop a broad strategic perspective of business principles and acquire a solid command of the technical fundamentals of engineering. The combination of engineering and business culminates in students leaving the program well prepared for success in managing highly technical business environments.
In addition to specific required business and engineering courses, the program contains two block options designed to help students develop greater competence in particular aspects of engineering and business: a four-course engineering block option and a three-course business block option. This major prepares students for management and sales positions in companies that specialize in high-tech engineering, manufacturing, and consulting.
