Understanding the Background of MBA
In the early part of the 20th century when the United States started becoming industrialized, training in accounting and bookkeeping had been offered in colleges but the need for more people able to work in different capacities was rising quickly.
With so many new businesses and revolutionary manufacturing, company owners started looking for better management techniques. Colleges and Universities had to make sure that their students had the right knowledge to succeed in business. As corporations grew, educators understood that students had to be provided with formal education to prepare them for leadership positions.
Early MBA programs were focused on providing the students with the basic concepts of business which needed to be mastered before moving onto any specializations. The core curriculum in the colleges did not address the most important aspects of successfully manage a business. In the 1950s, after meeting with resistance from business professionals in the industry, the colleges and universities restructured their programmes to be more comprehensive which were much similar to the MBA programs taught today.
After the brief history of MBA and how it was born, now we’d like to tell you some of the benefits or reasons why people want to go for an MBA.
Surprisingly, one of the advantages of having an MBA degree is that the students have higher levels of confidence about their financial and non-financial conditions.
Going through this course while balancing work, family, social life and other personal commitments will give you an immense sense of reward and achievement.
Much of the knowledge that you gain during an MBA, all the soft and hard skills are applicable across many industries. Unlike a career-specific advanced course like a medical degree, MBA can transfer easily to many industries and give you access to a wide range of career opportunities.
Some of the much popular reasons that people opt to go for an MBA is that there is a significant difference between the salaries of those with other degrees and those with MBAs, with MBA coming out on the top.
Another quite popular reason is that many companies require or prefer candidates with an MBA, which means having an MBA can open up your new opportunities for you in the industry.
To sum it all up, MBA was created with the sole purpose of preparing students to be able to successfully handle a business or a part of business. Today, though the number of reasons going for an MBA might have increased, at its core it provides an opportunity to the students to get a managerial position in their industry.
