Business Management

Huntsman Corporation, a 8-billion-dollar (in revenue) chemical company, often relies on chemical engineers in business management roles. Chemical engineers typically started as process engineers at manufacturing plants or product development specialists in R&D. Over the course of their careers, some of them could choose to move into functions such as sales, marketing or supply chain. From those experiences, they might be promoted to manage a business with profit and loss (P&L) responsibilities.
