10 Reasons to Get an MBA

A Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree has many advantages that can improve the future for someone completing the advanced coursework.  I’ve made a list of my top 10 reasons to get an MBA.

1. You will become more knowledgeable about investments and how risk and reward are related.
2. Your resume will stand head and shoulders above other applicants for the same position.
3. You will normally start out in a management position with higher pay than someone without an MBA.
4. Your logic and critical thinking skills will be honed to make you more productive with financial data.
5. You will have lots of experience working in teams since it will be part of your course requirements in a full time MBA program.
6. Your marketability will be greatly improved allowing you to be considered for more positions.
7. If you want to start a business, you’ll already know how to write a business plan and put it into action.
8. You will have learned how to network with others in your field of interest and you’ll be able to use them as a resource when needed.
9. International opportunities will open up allowing you to work in another country if you desire.
10. Many colleges and universities will allow someone with an MBA to work as an adjunct faculty member teaching business courses, especially to non-traditional students.

For those who have MBA degrees, please share your thoughts on the reasons why anybody should get an MBA degree.
