Why Do So Many Top Jobs Require an MBA?

Have you ever looked at a list of job openings and noticed how many of them say “MBA preferred?” If you want a big job, you just might need a big degree. Employers often seek out candidates with a Masters of Business Administration degree. But what makes this degree so important? Earning an MBA will teach you a number of valuable skills, including:

Critical Thinking

No matter their industry, employers want people who can evaluate complex information quickly. MBA programs teach critical thinking skills. They help you learn to quickly interpret and understand large amounts of information and come up with good solutions. This will prepare you to respond effectively in even the most difficult situations at your job.

Practical Preparedness

MBA programs focus on teaching real-world skills. You will spend much of your time examining case studies from the business world. For each situation you examine, you’ll have to come up with a realistic way to achieve your goals. By the time you graduate, you will know how to apply your skills in the real world. This means that employers will not need to wait for you to figure out how to apply what you learned. You will be able to start making a positive difference immediately.

Effective Communication

One of the most important skills you’ll learn in an MBA program is how to communicate effectively with multiple people. By the time you complete the degree, you'll have developed good listening and comprehension skills, and also how to relay information to others. Employers can then count on you to listen to clients, understand their needs, and respond appropriately.

Financial & Technical Understanding

Your program will also prepare you for the technical side of doing business. You will learn accounting procedures for managers and how to understand business statistics and strategic planning methods. You’ll also be introduced to the skills you need to do business on a global scale. And you’ll be introduced to information technology that will make your job more effective and efficient. 

Future Planning

An important component to any good MBA program is strategic thinking. Your courses will show you how to develop strategies for the long-term success of your organization. You will learn how to look at current market trends, make predictions, and develop plans. This doesn’t mean you won’t pay attention to present needs. Instead, it means that you will be able to respond to short-term concerns in a way that contributes to your long-term goals.
