It is still unusual for employers to use business schools for the management training of professional engineers, `on-the-job¿¿ experience being the traditional approach. There should be proper emphasis on the correct development of management skills of engineers. A balanced programme of theory and practice has been shown to be very successful at Henley, The Management College. Henley's Master of Business Administration degree programme is unique in that it is structured on a sandwich basis ¿¿ short periods of academic study are blended with work on practical projects carried out within the organisation from which course members are drawn. As a result, members can retain close links with their parent organisations, and there are real practical advantages for the organisation as project work is specially designed not only to sharpen the member's intellect, but literally to put it to work for the benefit of the employer.
