The Value of An MBA Degree - Top 5 Jobs For MBA Grads
Getting an MBA is one of the smartest moves a person can make in today’s economy. An MBA opens up a wide range of employment opportunities and prepares future business owners for the reality of working for themselves or running companies that create much-needed jobs. Business students wise enough to pursue an MBA are rewarded for their efforts, too: Fifty-four percent of MBA graduates receive a job offer within the first six months after graduation, and most graduates receive at least two, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council. The top five opportunities for MBA grads range from finance jobs to human resources, so read on to find out what awaits those with an MBA.
Top five jobs for MBA grads
1. Financial manager
As the financial voice of reason in a company, financial planners’ choices often involve complex calculations and unpopular results. Training at the graduate level can increase technical savvy and provide an opportunity to become adept at helping colleagues understand complicated financial reports. The job market for financial managers is competitive, but the median salary of $107,160 is a nice reward. Financial staffing agency, Accounting Principals has provided their list of the
top finance jobs for MBA grads
2. Management analyst
Management analysts work as consultants and help companies improve their profitability, structure, and efficiency. Many companies prefer to hire analysts with an MBA. This field provides a high degree of flexibility, as analysts can work for an agency or for themselves, and it offers a very decent salary with a median of $75,650.
3. HR specialist
A master’s degree isn’t required to work in HR, but it is a huge asset to those who want to advance in the field or do high-level training. HR professionals impact a company’s success by guiding management to good hires, increasing efficiency, and working to retain and reward valuable workers. Those with strong interpersonal skills are best suited to jobs in HR, and this dynamic field has a median salary of $110,000.
4. Credit analyst
The job outlook for credit analysts is excellent. Credit analysts need to have a strong background in business, math, and statistics, so technically minded individuals are most likely to flourish in this field. With a median income of $72,000, credit analysts do not have the highest paid of all finance jobs, but they do get to work in a challenging and relevant field with excellent long-term job security.
5. Marketing manager
Marketing managers are the ultimate multi-taskers of the business world. They work closely with sales and art departments, and they provide a bridge between these departments and PR. Marketing managers need excellent time management skills and the ability to think on their feet. All this hard work pays off, though: Marketing managers have a median salary of $116,010.
A wider range of options, higher salaries, and greater career flexibility await those with an MBA, so consider the time and money spent on graduate school a wise investment in your future. Finishing an MBA will take you one giant step closer to landing the job you’re best suited for and starting the career of your dreams.
