When you apply for a job, first impressions are everything.
This starts with your résumé and extends to how you conduct yourself in an interview. But there’s one thing prospective employers will always look out for when you’re applying for your dream job – your qualifications.
And this can work in your favour. Having a master of business administration (MBA) means that you can actually earn more money than someone who hasn’t got that qualification. A 2017 to 2018 college salary report by Payscale revealed that graduates of the world’s best schools for business majors showed a significant increase in pay from their early career after graduation to their mid-career stage.
But don’t sweat it if you’re thinking that you haven’t made the right education choice yet, there’s still time. Studying for an MBA could totally change your career and you can find out how by attending the QS World MBA Tour that hits the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel on Tuesday, September 26. It’s the leading provider of MBA information events in the world that brings top business schools and high calibre candidates together, face-to-face.
Also, if you’re looking to work in sustainable business development or cleantech, areas which are thriving in Vancouver, you can find out more at this informative event where more than 40 business schools will be represented.
We’ve compiled a list of three universities whose admission directors will be at the event that you can meet with and find out about their MBA programs.
UBC’s Sauder School of Business is consistently ranked among the top 100 business schools worldwide and it’s somewhere that you can study a 16-month MBA program. Throughout this course you’ll be challenged to strategize like a CEO, and you could even emerge as Vancouver’s next big business leader.
There are eight graduate degrees that you can choose between at the University of San Fransisco if you’re interested in furthering your education outside of Canada. You can specialize in financial analysis, global entrepreneurial management, public administration, and much more. Studying here means you’ll develop a global business perspective that emphasizes social justice, cultural understanding, and diversity. Oh, and you’ll bank a better salary later in your career too.
If you’ve already studied for your undergraduate degree in Vancouver, why not do something different and apply to study in Barcelona. ESADE is known as one of the top global centres of management education. Here you can study for your MBA on a full-time or part-time basis. And to make it even better, you can streamline your studies in a Multinational MBA or a Global Executive MBA.
You can meet with representatives from the above universities and many more at the QS World MBA Tour next month, and it will only cost you $5 when you pre-register online. You don’t need to have work experience to attend the fair but to be eligible for an MBA program, you require a minimum average of two years work experience along with your undergraduate degree. Make sure you dress to impress the admission directors of your prospective university.
You don’t want to miss the QS World MBA Tour as it’s the leading provider of MBA information events in the world which brings top business schools and high calibre candidates together, face-to-face.
