Online MBA/MS Career Outlook

When you earn both a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Science (MS) in Management and Organizational Behavior, you are primed to pursue a wide variety of high-level and executive positions in business, thanks to the range of skills you will have developed through your studies.

An MBA is a valuable asset in the job marketplace, even—and perhaps especially--during times of economic uncertainty. The MBA Career Services Council reported that in 2010, business schools observed a growth in recruiting activity across all industries1—suggesting that career opportunities for MBA graduates are strong. The business skills you will learn in an MBA program can also help position you for entry into senior management and executive jobs.

Employers have also started to appreciate qualitative managerial skills such as communication, strategic thinking and leadership in their employees2. These are studied in the MS portion of the dual degree curriculum, which also includes coursework in change strategy, organizational development and culture, decision making and team building. These qualitative skills are often essential to becoming a truly successful and inspiring manager and leader.

By combining business and management expertise, you will not only offer employers a wide range of valuable skills and knowledge, but you will be able to apply them effectively no matter which industry or position you work in—now and in the future.
