An MBA is extremely versatile and valuable and will allow you to pivot in many different directions depending on your career aspirations, skills, and interests. Let’s take a look at just a few of the career paths and job opportunities open to you following graduation:
1. Management Consultant
A management consultant’s job is to advise companies on their management practices and identify problems within the organization that may be holding the company back from reaching its goals. Many management consultants are self-employed, while others work for large firms. According to the Institute of Management Consultants, about 27% of consultants are self-employed. This is an ideal arrangement for many MBAs: a flexible career path with high earning potential.
2. Marketing Manager
Marketing managers oversee the planning and execution of a multifaceted marketing plan to help their companies grow. They set budgets, plan marketing campaigns, and manage staff on the marketing team to conduct market research, launch marketing campaigns, and analyze the data collected from each campaign to make improvements. Their goal is to create more brand awareness and bring in sales. Marketing managers must be knowledgeable about many different types of marketing approaches and also be skilled at leading a diverse team.
3. Investment Banker
Investment bankers help companies invest and grow their capital through shrewd purchasing of equity and debt. They also provide advice and assistance during financial transitions such as acquisitions and mergers. Bankers are responsible for ensuring all pertinent paperwork is in order and that all government regulations are followed during any and all transactions
4. Operations Manager
An operations manager is sort of a company’s jack-of-all-trades. He or she oversees daily operations, purchasing, inventory, coordination between departments, and policy creation. Responsibilities may also include hiring employees and negotiating contracts. However, this job will vary depending on the organization and expectations of the CEO. Therefore, this position requires a great deal of flexibility and multitasking
5. Financial Advisor
Financial advisors cater to the individual rather than businesses, and play a key role in helping families plan for retirement, invest in their children’s education, and build individual wealth. A financial advisor looks out for their client’s best interests by suggesting good investment opportunities and creating realistic long-term plans. This is an excellent career path for MBAs who have a desire to help others become financially savvy.
