#WhyMBA

For the last few weeks I have been working with an amazing team at salford university and wanted to share my work we have done on my blog as I am super proud of what my team have achieved!

As part of a live brief, our team worked with the Salford Business School to  promote the MBA program, where we developed a campaign that shows how a MBA student possesses the qualities and skill set found in a superhero.

An important part of the brief is to compose a blog post which I shared a few days ago, it was titled what does MBA stand for?  Our next article I will be sharing with you is titled #WhyMba? This article looks at why you should consider studying your MBA at salford University and what great opportunities there are to go above and beyond.

Yes, so why MBA? This question is often asked on twitter #WhyMBAas people contemplate the decision to complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA). To help answer this question, we spoke to current MBA students at Salford Business School and created this list of benefits and advantages of doing an MBA.

One of the biggest advantages of completing an MBA is the enhancement of your employability, in particular at senior level in an organisation. Since the MBA degree is highly valued, having such a qualification opens up the job market, increases your chances of being invited to the interview and therefore provides greater career opportunities.

Preparing you for higher level positions

An MBA program provides an array of enriched knowledge that better prepares graduates for higher level positions within the workplace. Students who complete their undergraduate degree and decide to do a MBA soon after will set themselves apart from their competitors, as they will have substantially upgraded their skill set. However, many MBA programmes are accredited by the global organisation that is Association of MBAs – AMBA – a global network of MBAs. AMBA opens doors to a select MBA community that has a range of networking events and training sessions that helps you to keep your high level knowledge to help you succeed in an executive position.

For AMBA accredited MBAs such as those offered by Salford Business School

“Candidates must have a minimum of three years full-time post study work experience with evidence of managerial responsibility.”

This also applies to people who have a professional work history and decide to pursue an MBA later in life. They are able to refer to their experience and apply it into theory to produce real world examples and solutions. This enhanced knowledge can then be incorporated into their current and new business ventures.

One of the great benefits of doing an MBA is the potential to expand professional networks. Being in an MBA program allows for regular interaction with like-minded students who wish to excel. In addition, students can also establish close connections with professors and other staff. Building such relationships is advantageous as it could aid with career progression.

Essentially, possessing an MBA degree enhances personal brand equity. A person who accomplishes an MBA signifies that they are highly competent and well-prepared to take on many responsibilities within the workplace.  An MBA graduate represents the ability to overcome challenges and persevere to achieve the best results.

What MBA stands for

Why You?

We believe that everyone has the capacity to unleash their inner superhero to not only reach their goals, but exceed them. As you may have seen in the infographic above, we provide an answer to the question, What does MBA stand for?

Under ‘Superhero Skills’, we have introduced an elite team called “The Experts” to depict what an MBA stands for at Salford University. This team consists of international members who possess a distinctive and important skill that can be found in an MBA student.

At Salford University, students have the opportunity to harness their abilities and go above and beyond to not only achieve greatness, but be extraordinary. If you have what it takes to supercharge your skills and be the best you in the universe, then choose an MBA at Salford University.

All the best super heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary

– Gerard Way (American musician and comic book writer)
