The Engineer's Choice
of MBA

February 22, 2019 is marked on the official City of Houston calendar; it's Harold Cobb, P.E. Day.

Cobb, Houston's 2019 "Engineer of the Year," is Executive Vice President and Central Operating Group Manager of Terracon, leads 46 offices—4,500 employees across 11 states—with a gross annual revenue of $245 million. He's been a consulting engineer for nearly four decades. He's also a 2012 LeTourneau MBA graduate.

When Cobb decided it was time to expand his career, he chose LeTourneau.

"LeTourneau's MBA program helped me contextualize what I had previously learned and experienced in my career with classic business theories and Christian principles. Obtaining the degree added to my credibility as a leader and manager of people."

Entirely online, LETU's MBA is ideal for the working professional whose goal is to move into leadership roles. And with a heritage in  STEM fields, LETU is a natural choice for lifetime engineers such as Cobb, who also points out that LETU's program improved his life beyond his job:

"I significantly benefited from the courses that helped me crystallize my life purpose and the values I live by. The self confidence I gained from completing this MBA helped me not only advance in my chosen profession, consulting engineering, but helped me have better and more purposeful relationships with others, including taking a more holistic approach to life as part of my vocational calling."

And while it's technically only an officially designated day in the City of Houston, LETU observes Harold Cobb, P.E. Day, too.

Continue building your story at the Christian polytechnic university. With over 120 programs—on campus, online or a combination of both—there’s an LETU degree that will help you invest in your life’s calling. Talk to an enrollment officer today at 903.833.3012 or email
