Pursuing a career within the business world during uncertain economic times is risky without the proper qualifications and previous industry experience. Due to these circumstances, mastering the appropriate skill-set for your select career choice is more vital than ever. It’s no surprise that MBA program attendance has reached an all-time high and is expected to continue its upward turn in the foreseeable future.

A 2010 study on national MBA statistics indicates over 150,000 MBA degrees are granted annually from roughly 454 accredited MBA institutions. With varying programs available, nearly 57% of students opted for a part-time class schedule rather than attending a full-time course.

If you are considering entering an MBA program, locating a business school containing the classes you require to advance within your career field is step one. For example, simply typing Virginia Business Schools or Virginia MBA programs into Google’s search engine is a prime example of how to easily locate a school near you.

Familiarize yourself with the programs offered by your school of choice to determine which educational route you intend to pursue.Most business schools offer Traditional, Professional, and Executive MBA programs. Examine courses and schedules carefully prior to submitting your application or scheduling your GMAT.

Possessing an understanding of the enrollment process prior to submitting your application benefits you in the long-run. When applying, bear in mind what GMAT scores your school of choice requires, along with specified documents requested as part of the application process.

As the job market grows, we anticipate an even larger MBA program turn-out in the coming years. If you are interested in expanding your career opportunities with an MBA degree, visit our Admissions page for further details.
