Are you an engineer, natural scientist, lawyer or doctor? Do you have a degree and work experience? Would you, next to your specific field of study, also like to gather knowledge in business and management in order to qualify for a leadership position? The Master of Business Administration (MBA) could be the right choice for your continuing studies.
The MBA is a management course that covers all the main management functions within a business. The appropriate MBA can also boost the careers of experienced economists, who want to specialise on one specific field of study.
The Master of Business Administration is a postgraduate degree with generic management and study of business at its core, and is thought to be one of the most prestigious degrees. An MBA programme is generally only aimed at you, if you are working in a certain profession or have gained a certain level of work experience and want to gain in-depth knowledge on a certain subject.
An MBA gives you a global view of business administration and management and increases your chances of advancing your career, as many executive management positions require this degree. The study consists of many types of degrees, such as accounting, corporate governance, corporate law, human resource management, marketing and operations management.
With an MBA students gain knowledge in carrying out and analysing scientific research on business-related issues, which is relevant to all industries, irrespective of the career chosen. This general curriculum content is supplemented by your specific field of focus.
