What can I do with my MBA?


An MBA adds to your existing experience to develop your vocational skills and knowledge, and equip you with a deeper understanding of management and business. Some MBA students will have begun their studies with a clear idea of their next move after the end of the course while others may be considering a variety of options, such as:

  • Moving into a higher-level managerial post within your current employment or professional area
  • Setting up your own business or becoming self-employed
  • Changing career direction, either into a related professional area or into a new sector/profession.

MBA graduates can be found in many varied jobs and careers, meaning that there are no `typical´ MBA jobs. This means that there is no single source of information on MBA careers or employers and that you may need to use general careers resources to research and achieve your goal, depending on your objectives.
