The value of MBA programmes
The Master of Business administration (MBA) is now renowned as the gold standard for management education. The MBA is an academic degree provided by universities and business schools worldwide. There are thousands of programmes internationally and this number is growing.
The MBA will be worthwhile if you have the necessary level of maturity, clarity of career and personal goals, and the drive and skills for business development. The MBA is an excellent option for people who would like to develop as business leaders, as mid-level or top managers. It is also a great option for many business and social entrepreneurs.
The MBA is a considerable investment, not only in terms of finance but also in time and effort, and it is beyond any doubt a life-changing step to take and a rewarding experience in so many ways.
Business schools usually require that prospective students have at least two or more years of professional full-time work experience, and in some cases even managerial responsibilities, in order to be eligible for admission. There is good reason for this – MBA studies are very practical and rely heavily on the past experience and skills of the students and their active contribution to the classroom learning experience.
