Learning Center Experience
As you look at the credentials of those around your office, it may be
that a majority of your colleagues have earned their Master of Business
Administration (MBA). You may be wondering if this has lessened the value of obtaining
the advanced business degree. However, many experts in the business
world don’t believe this to be true.
Experts believe that business schools are focused on continually staying relevant in today’s
ever-changing global marketplace and that the educators at the schools
strive—most successfully—to provide their students with the best education
possible. The consensus is that if you have earned your MBA, you have an
advantage over your competition. Especially if the school is ACBSP-accredited, which shows that the university is committed
to continuous improvement.
Since the norm has shifted from
staying at a company for a majority of one’s career to a state of steady
change, an MBA can prepare and cross-train you in all aspects of business, so
you are a more marketable employee. Once you earn your MBA, you have shown that
you have earned a quality education and that you are interested in lifelong learning.
MBA programs at the top schools foster thought leadership,
innovation, and corporate social responsibility—on a global scale.
However, an MBA is not for
everyone. It takes a great deal of time and commitment to earn this coveted
graduate degree. It also takes some financing. Many businesspeople choose to
earn their degree online while working a full-time job, while some want to
complete the degree faster, and choose to go back to school full time.
Earning your MBA can be an
intellectually stimulating and fun experience. A majority of the work done in
obtaining the degree is completed in a team environment to simulate the “real
world” of today’s corporations. This teamwork leads to great networking
opportunities with your fellow students and often is a catalyst in obtaining a
new position after earning your degree.
According to Salary.com, “having an online business degree is a strategic tool that
helps address the challenges of today’s global business environment while
boosting an individual’s competitive advantage amongst a shrinking job pool .
. . The recent downturn has caused many to seek online business degrees in
order to achieve their education goals, fulfill new career objectives and
increase earning potential.”
