Mastering Business Acumen (MBA Program)

We are looking for future leaders like you; an ambitious, talented utility industry professional who has what it takes to solve the most important challenges of our time. Our offer is simple, a two-year MBA-like experience in our focused curriculum, serving key executives across the global energy industry on our most interesting and challenging consulting engagements and programs.

Q

Many early stage professionals see an MBA as a gateway to an exciting and lucrative career change. In fact, the top three reasons cited for getting an MBA are: 1) Higher Salary, 2) Better Opportunities, and 3) Network Development. Business schools know this, and aggressively market to your dreams. What they don’t tell you is the financial and opportunity cost. These days, few MBA programs can be completed for less than a six figure, multi-year investment. And considering salary deferral, your investment can easily be $250k or more. With starting salaries for top MBA grads barely hovering above $100,000, it is no wonder that a growing number of students are questioning the payback on such a large investment.
 
We offer something different, the UMS MBA. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars and two to three years learning many already obsolete ideas, we offer the opportunity be a part of the energy transition, decarbonization, and driving ESG goals all while attaining a greater salary, better opportunities, and executive-level networking, while undertaking a rigorous, cutting-edge curriculum – and getting paid for the experience. We call this Mastering Business Acumen Program.

If our Mastering Business Acumen “MBA” program is of interest to you, our leadership team would like to discuss your career aspirations and how we can work together. Reach out to our lead North American Vice President, Patrick Heuer at pheuer@www.umsgroup.com
