Is now the right time to improve your business education? Are you working in the military and you want to be promoted, if so then you will need degree. If you work in logistics services or you are managing the financial affairs of military unit then it will certainly help to have business degree. In many companies and companies if you have business degree, you have upward mobility, and if you already have job, it makes sense to get degree so you stay with the company, and other people are laid off, while you receive promotion. This is where ongoing education comes in, and this might be an excellent time to get business degree. Let me explain.
It seems that there are seats available in some of the leading business schools in the country now, and they need to fill those seats, and therefore they might offer quote. Is it important where you get your business degree? Yes, it’s important on your resume, and not all business schools are the same. Some of the most popular may not be the best, so you still have to shop.
On September 17, 2012 there was an article in the Wall Street Journal entitled; “B-School Applicants Decline for the Fourth Year,” by MelissKorn. The article shows decrease of 20% in the last 2 years in some very famous business schools. Even the Yale School of Management has decreased almost 10% in the last two years.
Now that’s probably very good article for you to read, when you consider some of what I’m saying here. You know, if you just entered college and are thinking of getting business degree, you might not want to spend hundred thousand dollars in student loans that oblige yourself for decade or more of unsecured payments for employment. But if you’ve worked, suddenly it’s completely different ballgame, your education is not your first degree, but continuing education, beyond anything you already have.
Corporations, corporations, and government agencies must run their business units efficiently, with Six Sigmstyle strategy. Very important. In the future there will be significant budget cuts in government, and they must have the best people to maintain efficiency, provide maximum service, and do it as cheaply as possible. Obviously you can understand that reality will appear very quickly. My question to you is are you ready for it? If not, you can consider continuing business education for your future. Please think about it.
