MBA as a shortcut to a graduate job

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

A Masters in Business and Administration (MBA) is not like any other course. It is internationally known and recognised and it includes other indirect benefits such as increasing your graduate employability.

Despite the fact that most British graduates finish university with no desire of going back for a while, the possibility of studying for an MBA is an option that will add value to your CV in many different careers.

If you have time and money enough to consider studying towards an MBA, check if the following benefits of this course convince you.

Increase your career and salary prospects

Whether you like it or not, today’s world is moved by money. That is probably why sectors related to business are generally more profitable than the ones that are not.

The Executive MBA Council's latest survey results showed that 23% of students had salaries increase upon completion of their Executive MBA (EMBA), while 43% actually received a promotion during the EMBA.

Choose from numerous professional ladders

Because most employers – if not all of them - are part of a business or a company, all of them value an applicant with business knowledge and awareness.

In fact, the recent report ‘Working towards your future’ released by CBI/NUS said that employers look for graduates that understand what the key drivers for business success are.

Expand your networking

Networking is essential in order to find graduate jobs. When studying an MBA, the chances of meeting people from different business sectors – both students and employers - increases significantly.

This will help you contact people from all around the world and can certainly raise your employment options.

What are the other advantages of studying a MBA? What are the disadvantages? Do you think an MBA is an option that could suit most working areas?
