BS -> MEng or BS -> Industry?

    BS --> MEng or BS --> Industry?

    Hi, I'm currently going to complete by B.S. in Electrical Engineering at a decent state school in New York in little less than two years. I might be able to complete a Masters of Engineering (not M.S.!) in 1 year, after my BSEE.

    Should I get my MS at my undergrad school, or apply elsewhere? To be honest, if it takes more than a year, I'm not very interested. My ultimate goal is an MBA later on, but should I stay at my current school or apply elsewhere? If I stay here, I might be able to complete within 1 year, but if I go to another school (for ex, a better one), it'll take two years. I know experience is important when finding a job, and I've had one internship between my sophmore and junior year, and now will be applying for internships during my last summer as a UG until I'm a senior.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm very interested in engineering (math, science, etc...), but I would want to move up into management sooner or later.

    Your thoughts?
