pursuing masters in unrelated courses Watch
is it possible to do a masters in eco or management after a MEng in something not related such as chemical engineering.....if yes.....how long would it take to get a masters......would work experience be required before doing them?
Why not do an MEng that incorporates some management modules:

Alternatively all MBA courses have entry requirements that don't specify the subject of your degree. And for less vocational more academic courses you can get conversion courses (http://www.prospects.ac.uk lists almost all the masters courses available in the uk).
nono all the engineering disciplines are excellent degrees - choose the course you think you will enjoy and excell in the most.
MBA = Masters in Business Administration (so it's specifically a management masters course and usually quite a vocational one - ie it gives you very practical skills to become a good manager). If you're interested in becoming someone in big business it's probably the best route to take (although it's not compulsory I don't know anyone who's done one who's regretted it or thought it a waste of time - and I know about 15 people who've recently taken MBAs) theres more information about the type and stuff covered in typical MBAs here: http://www.management.soton.ac.uk/St...ies/pg/MBA.htm (sorry for all the soton links but it's a website I know my way around). Most MBAs include a significant element of economics/finance (in relation to business) as well as managerial skills etc etc.
1 yr full time
2 years part time
If you can get sponsership from your employer to study part time it works out a lot cheaper (for example at my workplace (soton uni in case you hadn't guessed ) our department pays one 3rd of the fees the human resources department pay another 3rd which just leaves 1/3 left for the person studying to pay - and you get a day or so off *work* each week to attent lectures/study)
(another Soton link again sorry but we're pretty standard and scored really well (top 30 EU business schools) in a recent review of MBAs)
Yep - it's a slightly different course for people who've already been in management posts for 10 yrs, the normal MBAs usually assume 2 or 3 yrs of management experience and graduate MBAs assume no experience
