Default help deciding my future

Dear Sir
First of all, let me thank you for your clear and honest responses to any question in this awesome website, and thank you in advance for taking the time to answer these questions.
Now for the question:
I am an electrical and communication engineer, Iíve graduated from United Arab Emirates (Dubai), and right now I am in America, doing my MBA in international business.
I am considering a job in the states, I want to combine these two degrees in one field, but I donít know which field to pick in particular as of yet, itís still vague for me, but at least, I want to do something related to control systems, and consultation, or letís put it in other words, I want to apply my engineering knowledge in a human based environment, in which I can interact and apply some leadership and behavioral skills in an engineering field
So, is there a good answer for this question?. Also do you recommend me to take any degrees/ certificates, to improve my credentials?
Yours,
Sam

Do what you enjoy doing and you will be better at it than someone who just does it for the money.

If I had the ability I'd develop a better toilet, one that doesn't break all the time. Refrigerators can go 40 years without a hickup and TVs can last 15. I don't know anyone who has spare refrigerator or TV parts, but everyone has spare toilet parts.

Items for the disabled have a long way to go.

Psychology is a good background for anything. You'll always be dealing with people.

Does it strike anyone else as odd that someone would seek the advice of total strangers - in an on-line city forum, of all places - to assist them in deciding what to do for the rest of their lives?

Nope... scroll down to the "Relationships" forum sometime and you will see it's par for the course.

Plus, when he asks "So, is there a good answer for this question?".... if you look, he never asks a question.
Guess we gotta read minds too...
