Diploma will definitely make you a better educated person, but to apply your knowledge in practice you need some additional skills which are provided by MBA – Master of Business Administration program. It presents education in the sphere of business which will allow you to climb career steps, launch your own business, develop your manager’s skills and establish useful connections. To enter this course you will need not only to pay money but to prepare thoroughly as well – the competition is from two to thirty candidates for one place.
Every business school has its own list of requirements, which necessarily includes having a diploma, work experience and no less than 250 balls in TOEFL (the third requirement is not for native English speakers). You will also have to pass Graduate Management Admission test which will check out your analytical skills. Another important stage is essay and interview. One bad joke or obscurely formulated thought and your CV will be put in “Don’t Take” folder.
If you are lucky to enter MBA, you should choose the form of studying which suits you best. Full-time program means that you will not be able to combine it with work as it will require all your time and energy. It is an effective and well-balanced combination of theory and practice. Part-time course means that you will study in the evenings and on weekends. Distance-learning presents education in on-line regime. As a rule, you will need to come to MBA School only once – to present your diploma work. Every student of business school is assigned to a curator who controls his or her progress. Executive is a mixture of full-time and part-time programs which is available only for the business owners and top managers who want to strengthen their position. This model includes workshops, practical training and cases.
