Guide to Business Schools
People attend business schools to give themselves a better chance at getting ahead in the competitive business world. Business schools offer classes in everything from finance, accounting, information systems, organizational skills, human resource management, and marketing. They aim to prepare people to enter the business world and be successful, whether they join an existing business or a business they start for themselves.
Most people go to business school to get an MBA, or Master’s in Business Administration. Most companies who are hiring love to see that someone has an MBA. There are multiple ways of obtaining an MBA through a business school. Some MBA programs last two academic years, or 18 months. Online MBA programs are obtained by attending “off campus” classes that are conducted online, also known as an online degree. Sometimes they are also conducted via videoconferences. Meanwhile, Executive MBAs are for people who are currently working in a business environment where they are able to keep working as well as earn their degree in about two years.
