http://www.cba.csuohio.edu/mba/amba.htm) lists nothing that would indicate
that anyone would earn a title like "Professional Engineer" upon completion.
It is a general management program with no real technical component. It
sounds to me as if the person has his BS in engineering, and then continued
on to get this MBA. So, as a professional engineer (for some reason many
Americans like to capitalize anything), probably with some experience under
his belt, he most likely went on to get his MBA to add some management and
You can't say that he ziskal inzenyrsky titul, because there is no such titul
in the US. (This is why Americans reading Czech business brochures or
websites think that most Czech men are named Ignatius or something like
that.) As I say, it sounds like he had already begun to work professionally
as an engineer (a bachelor's and a master's bestow no title on you here), and
after he had been working as a professional engineer, he went and got his MBA.
I'd like to hear other opinions, if anyone has one.
