The Graduate Management Admissions Council projects that nearly eight in 10 (79%) employers expect to hire MBA graduates in 2017. We know why MBA graduates are in such high demand—an MBA degree gives you a broad spectrum of proficiencies that can be applied to any industry. The Huffington Post identified quantitative, analytical and strategic thinking skills as three of the most important skills successful MBA students graduate with. They state, “These skills are the basic building blocks of understanding, managing and leading business.”

MBAs aren’t just for professionals with business degrees. In fact, it’s the perfect path for someone without a business degree that wants to boost his/her career. Take a bachelor’s degree from any field add real-world experience and an MBA—you have the formula for success.

MBA graduates are holding leadership positions in a variety of industries and they didn’t need a business undergraduate degree to get there. Just listen to what this CEO has to say about getting his MBA:

  • “Getting my MBA in marketing was a great career decision for me because it allowed me to add a wide range of practical business knowledge and skills to the critical and analytical thinking, writing and verbal skills I developed as a history major at a liberal arts college. My MBA also opened doors at companies that would have likely passed over my candidacy if I only had a non-business related undergraduate degree.” Bruce Douglas, Chief Executive Officer at EducationDynamics
