  • Healthcare
  • Human Resources
  • Education
  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Management
  • Product Management
  • Technology Management

MBA students gain many skills that are easily transferable to any of the above career choices. If students have a clear idea what sector they wish to pursue as a career it would be a wise choice to consider taking up a specialised MBA course. These take longer to complete than a broad MBA course, however they are more marketable and appealing to a business.

However there are core modules students will encounter on both broad and specialised courses such as:

  • Accounting
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Economics
  • Marketing

Specialised courses will incorporate all of the above however there will be further information about specific subject areas for example higher education and marketing. However, whatever course students eventually choose MBA degrees are always a very valuable and very desirable for a business.
Since higher education has become more widely available, businesses are always looking for employees with further experience and further degrees. MBA courses will allow students to obtain this edge on the competition.
