All About MBAs

MBA (Master of Business Administration) is a master degree in business administration that originated in America in the late 19th century, as companies sought scientific approaches to management. The MBA degree is now recognised worldwide and attracts people from a wide range of academic disciplines.

MBA courses are offered by a range of institutions, from universities to specialised business schools such as Ashridge. The degree courses can be full or part-time and many even offer distance learning. Having to choose from such a wide range of options, it is important that prospective students check that the course they intend to take has been accredited. The Association of MBA is responsible for accrediting courses based in the UK and they provide lists of business schools and advice on choosing the right MBA course. Newspapers, like the Financial Times often publish lists of the top ranking business schools and of the MBA's that are most respected. The list covers full-time, part-time and distance learning courses from not only the UK, but also across the world.

Most MBA courses cover the same curriculum. They offer training in various business disciplines and many now focus on teaching soft skills, like communication and group dynamics. Students undertake projects and assignments, either as part of a group or as individuals. The Projects aime at providing training in teamwork and at analysing group processes. Many MBA’s also offer specialised modules in topics,that include human resource management, logistics management, accountancy, health services management, association management, agribusiness and local government. This allows students to tailor their MBA to the work area in which they are employed or in which they intend to seek future employment.

Doing a MBA is obviously expensive, so the question is: are they worth it? The answer varies, as some studies claim that people with an MBA earn a lot more than those who simply have bachelor degrees. On the other hand, there are studies that show no real financial advantage and some chief executives are not that impressed by an MBA. For instance, Jim Brown, a CEO who gained an MBA from Harvard University in 1995, claimed that he found the friendships he formed with future leaders at Harvard were worth more than the degree. The fiasco of Enron and other corporate scandals may also have contributed to the degree losing some of its kudos.
