About BusinessBecause.com

BusinessBecause.com publishes daily b-school news, applicant advice and career inspiration for a global audience of future business leaders. You can join the community to make connections before, during and after b-school, access exclusive admmissions and job resources and share your own stories. 

You can use BusinessBecause:

  • Before your MBA - to research business schools, read MBA admissions tips and message current students and admissions directors
  • During your MBA - to connect with other business students in your city or across the world, build a professional online profile and research careers
  • After your MBA - to connect with fellow alumni in interesting careers, hear about companies currently hiring and stay in touch with b-school news

Our news stories

We publish journalism about trends in the business school world, the issues facing MBA students and applicants, MBA careers, MBA entrepreneurs, humorous pieces about campus life and regular stories on companies that are hiring from b-schools. 

We also gauge sentiment from across the b-school community via thought-provoking research, such as our competitions asking MBAs to predict the future.

We have an inhouse team of journalists but also encourage our members to submit their own personal MBA stories, business case studies, club news, job tips or fun photos!

Our editorial is built on a concept of "community journalism" - we cover personalities and institutions who are part of our community and always try to "tag" people in stories so that you can "meet" the people you read about!

Some of our stories are sponsored content and feature our partner schools. We do this to pay the bills, as we're a self-funded start-up. Read the stories and hopefully you'll agree that they're not shameless puff pieces, and they're informative and well-written.

Our history

BusinessBecause launched in late-2009 as the first "niche network" connecting business students, employers, business school applicants and business schools around the world. Our aim was to cover fascinating, people-focused stories and to provide useful information on choosing a b-school (e.g. Why MBA, MBA rankings) and finding interesting careers. 

In the last few years we've steadily grown in to a vibrant community where members share information with each other and use the network to build valuable career connections internationally. BusinessBecause.com now has more than 40,000 members worldwide and a monthly news readership of 100,000.
