The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a prestigious postgraduate qualification that provides an overview of key business practices and is highly valued by top employers.
While MBAs are at the same level of education as other Masters courses, they are usually studied once you’ve gained a few years of professional experience rather than carrying straight on from your undergraduate degree.
Types of MBA
First, you’ll need to decide which type of MBA suits your current level of experience, life circumstances and career goals. Courses fall under these main categories:
- General MBA (or just ‘MBA’) – the best option if you have some business experience (around three years is usually expected) and you want to fast-track your career by breaking into a management role, the finance industry, or corporate strategy.
- Executive (EMBA) – usually studied on a part-time basis, this is appropriate if you’re already in a corporate management position and have ambitions to enter the boardroom.
- Specialist MBA – perfect if you have some managerial experience and are looking to enter or gain promotion into a particular industry or sector.
- Distance learning MBA – often referred to as an online MBA, this is ideal if you can’t attend university full time and prefer to manage your studies around other personal and professional commitments.
How do I choose the right course?
Once you’ve decided which type of MBA you want to study, you may want to consider a number of other issues before settling on a course. These include:
- The cost of the course.
- The course schedule – how many lectures and tutorials are there each week? Will you be able to take a part-time job alongside your studies?
- Whether an MBA is necessary for your career progression. Will the qualification be valued by employers in your sector?
- The reputation of the institution. Find out about the quality of the teaching and resources, student satisfaction and support after graduation. Consult league tables and consider the best MBA programmes in the UK.
- Who are the tutors? Are they industry experts? This is especially important for specialist MBAs.
- Find out about the courses content and modules to ensure they match your interests and expectations.
- Make sure you meet the entry requirements.
Your Career Prospects with MBA
With the high cost of courses, it’s important to see a return on your investment. An MBA can often lead to a promotion, increased earnings or a career change. Nothing is guaranteed but, for example, graduates from business schools in the Financial Times (FT) Global MBA Ranking 2019 gained salary increases of between 67% and 118% after completing the course.
MBAs are known and respected globally, so if you’re interested in working abroad then the qualification will be beneficial – particularly as UK business schools are so well regarded. An MBA can also help you to specialise in your current sector or a new industry you want to move into.
