If you’re still not sure whether an MBA is the right next step in your career, consider some of the following reasons to start one:

1. Enhance your skills

As a non-consecutive business degree, the MBA curriculum teaches you business knowledge and hard skills. This is especially of use for students coming from different industry backgrounds, whether that’s engineering or social sciences. Depending on your MBA specialisation, the program could also focus on skills and case studies relevant to your target industry. 

2. Become a future leader

Just as important as these hard skills are the soft skills and managerial training sessions you receive during your MBA studies. There is a huge demand for future managers who can steer their teams successfully through the age of digital transformation - and an MBA equips you with the skills to succeed at this. 

3. Build your network

MBA classrooms bring together students from multiple industries and nationalities. Benefit from peer-to-peer learning, exchange knowledge and connect for the future. With an MBA you can truly build a global network of business connections and friends. 

4. Up your career

Whether you want to change industry, take on a leadership position or start your own business, the MBA gives you the framework for this. Get a competitive advantage with an MBA from a highly-ranked business school and benefit from the school’s company connections and alumni network. 

5. ROI

An MBA is a great investment that requires a lot of research and planning, so you want to make sure that your financial outlay and hard work are worth it. Business schools will be able to provide you with ROI reports of their MBA programs and expected salary increase figures. There are also free tools such as the QS MBA ROI Calculator that can help you compare schools, countries and industries.

Meet business schools and get your MBA journey started

With hundreds of MBA programs on the market, it can be hard to know where to get your MBA journey started. At the free QS Online MBA Event on November 17, you can meet with business schools in sessions tailored to your experience and interests. During these informal sessions, you can learn about the different courses on offer, such as full-time, part-time, online and Executive MBA courses. 

You will also get the chance to ask questions that go beyond the information provided on the business schools’ websites. Plus, you can leave a positive impression for your MBA application. A professional career coach session completes the event’s agenda, giving you valuable advice on MBA admissions and on accelerating your career progression.
