Tue Jul 18 2023

Not only can business school provide you with an enriching experience involving international experiences and the chance to grow your network, it can also open doors to a successful career. 

But, where to begin?

Deciding which program is the best fit for you can be a difficult decision. It all depends on what you want to gain from your business school journey from the unique skillset to the career and salary prospects.  

A generalist degree such as a Master in Management or MBA will give you a broad foundational skillset and business knowledge to prepare for a wide range of leadership career paths. 

Whereas if you have your sights set on a career in accounting, finance, or data science however, specific master’s degrees are likely your best fit to reach your goals. 

According to the GMAC Corporate Recruiters Survey 2023, employers who are looking to hire business master’s graduates are most likely to place them in a function specific to their degree. So, it’s important to have a clear idea of your target industry or job function before you embark on your degree. 

As the business world evolves, many business schools are offering exciting specialized master’s programs to prepare grads for the future of work in areas such as sustainable finance, entrepreneurship, and artificial intelligence. 

There are other decisions to make too, such as: Should you study abroad? Should you study full-time or online? Should you join a dual degree program?
