Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Take Up an MBA in 2022:

1. Fulfilling career aspirations

According to MBA central, 79% of the MBA graduates land themselves a career in well-established companies. The array of skills and knowledge – accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, etc – that you take away from an MBA programme help to boost your portfolio and stand out from the crowd in the competitive job market.

An MBA can also elevate your career to the next level. Besides equipping you with the relevant business skills, an MBA also allows you to gain new perspectives and insights, which enhance your situational awareness and decision-making at work. This would boost your work performance, leading to more career advancement opportunities.

2. Becoming better leaders

To lead and inspire people, it is important to have good leaders and managers who can not only plan strategically, but also inspire and motivate their teams to perform well. In today’s tight labour markets, great leaders play a big role in attracting and retaining top talents, who are key to contributing to the organisation’s success.

Through the MBA, you can develop your leadership and managerial skills, as well as other essential soft skills such as communications, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, etc. This will help you build your leadership capabilities and prepare you to become effective leaders in your organisation.
