Graduate jobs news: MBAs 'increasingly popular'
Thursday, 09 October 2008
An increasing number of people are opting to study a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) degree, despite already having a postgraduate qualification, it has been claimed.
In news which might be of interest to those looking for graduate jobs, people are keen to learn the hands-on skills which are often part of such a course, reports the Independent.
Speaking to the newspaper, Valerie Claude-Gaudillat, director of the Audencia MBA programme stated that around 20 per cent of students on the course already have a masters qualification.
"What they get from the MBA that they do not get from the Masters is much more advanced knowledge," she said.
Meanwhile, those looking for graduate jobs might benefit from taking up extreme sports.
According to research by SNO!zone, activities such as snowboarding give the impression that a candidate has "energy and ambition".
This means that people should consider carefully what they include in the personal interests section of the CV, the firm stated.
