MBA Courses can Catapult your Career to Great HeightsPosted: July 6, 2013
The MBA degree is probably the most revered postgraduate degrees in the job market. If a student or working professional is armed with an MBA then their future is considered to be ‘set’. In many developing countries, where the educational infrastructure is terribly damaged, students usually start working right after they finish high school. With poor educational qualifications a student can get only menial jobs. Some go on to finish their graduation through distance education but in the competitive job field a postgraduate degree holds great value. These students, with undergraduate degrees get good jobs but are discontented. They are extremely low paid and the chance at a promotion or pay hike seems bleak.
