Those three little words, Master in Business Administration can hold a lot of weight and prestige after your name. They can open up a world of professional opportunity, get you a prestigious introduction and set your career off onto the right direction. Earning your MBA can also set you back depending on the country, running upwards of 100,000 € and time, taking anywhere from one to three years to complete.
Is the commitment worth it?
Earning your MBA, for some, may pave a fast track to career success, elevating you higher on the corporate ladder. Having the designation “MBA” after your name may also guarantee you more flexibility and negotiating power, especially if you are switching careers- you may also seek out a more lucrative one in finance, business or administration quickly and easily.
2. Business Finesse
Do you possess business etiquette? Do you think like a business professional? Learning how to do just that is one of the biggest assets of earning your MBA. If you do not organically possess these traits, that an MBA, like the one offered at GBSB Global Business School, is nearly essential to acquire. While theoretically you could gain the skills needed to navigate the world of business by jumping feet first into the deep by engaging in your own business project without any training, it would probably take you a lot longer to figure it all out. Earning an MBA condenses the processes and provides the toolkit you will need to guide your career.
3. Professional Network
Expanding your professional network starts in business school. Earning your MBA at GBSB Global not only exposes you to a diverse student body, of which many will become friends, but you also have an extensive community of potential customers, supporters and mentors found in your professors. Relish in a eccentric network and gain a unique global vantage in business.
Don’t forget to do your homework. Not all MBA programs are alike. Make sure you find one that fits.
The caliber of your school and program matters. With over 150,000 new MBA graduates annually, earning an MBA doesn’t alone stand out apart from your colleagues and competitors-having an MBA from an upstanding program at a highly recognized school does.
MBA’s can be quite expensive, leaving some graduates deeply in debt. While they may be worth it, it may be worth your time finding the right program at the right price.
In addition to the monetary cost, you will also need to evaluate the time you will have to invest into the program of your choice. Earning your MBA could take anywhere between one to three years, depending on the institution and country, and whether you study full time or part time. Is that commitment worth your time when you could be working and earning money? Consider what kind of time you have to allot to your studies. Maybe a shorter program will be just what you are looking for, setting the foundation for you to pursue your business dreams.
The decision is yours. Whatever it is, make sure it suits your needs and aspirations. If it is worth your time, money and commitment to gain the hard and soft skills, business ethics and mindset and network that you need to make your career goals come to fruition, then seek it out.
