yes most oversea schools would take in a graduate of Engineering sharp sharp because Economics is fast becoming a science subject. Highly mathematical..

Engineering Economics is a full course, tho I don't know any Nigerian universities offering it. But it's a full course overseas and you can do your masters there, moreover you're already Engineering inclined.

It depends on what you want exactly but I suggest you do little research on it.
