4 Ways Upskilling with a Master in Business Administration (MBA) Can Benefit Your Career

Are you a business or management professional looking to take the next step up in your career? The University of Bolton’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) course is designed to help you develop your skills, while giving you a globally-recognised Postgraduate qualification.


Not only does our MBA programme allow you to apply for membership of the Chartered Management Institute upon completion of the course, but having this qualification will benefit your career in many ways.


1. It can help you get hired faster

Having an MBA qualification is fantastic for your CV, and it can get you noticed by potential employers. The International MBA Survey 2020 found that almost two thirds of MBA graduates had found their dream role within six months of completing an MBA.


2. It will fast-track your career dreams

Going into your Master of Business Administration course with a career goal in mind can help you stay focused. Often, people who are looking to progress at work lack the experience or confidence to make it happen. With a Postgraduate programme like ours, you’ll be able to develop a range of skills and create a proactive career plan to help you climb the ladder.


3. Postgraduate study improves earning potential

If you want to increase your earning power, Postgraduate training, such as a master’s, can give you the leverage you need. In fact, a 2020 report by the Higher Education Policy Institute indicates that Postgraduates bring home an average of 18% more money than Undergraduate degree holders, within just six months of graduation.


4. It will boost your confidence

The International MBA Survey also tells us that 68% of MBA graduates see themselves as being more confident on completion of their MBA degree. In the group, 62% also thought they were better at solving problems, a further 58% thought they were better prepared for highly competitive work environments, and 56% had a confidence boost when it came to dealing with people in a professional capacity.


At the University of Bolton, we rank No.1 in the North West for Student Experience (and No.3 in the UK for Teaching Quality) in Business Studies Courses in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021, making us the perfect place to begin your MBA upskilling journey.


We provide a supportive and friendly learning environment to help students reach their potential, and our dedicated Employability Team is also on hand to turn your career ambitions into reality. To find out more about enrolling with us in January 2021, visit our course page for details.
