The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a master’s degree in business administration and is an increasingly popular course offered by Business Schools around the world. It attracts students from a wide range of academic disciplines and working background.
A typical MBA course consists of two parts: core courses and major. Students traditionally study a wide breadth of core courses in the program’s first year, then pursue a specialized curriculum or major in the second year. The core courses in the MBA program introduce students to the various areas of business such as accounting, economics, finance, international business, organizational behavior, marketing, strategy, operations management etc. After completing the core courses, students in the MBA program can choose an area of concentration or major.
Most programs base admission on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the undergraduate results, work experience, academic transcripts, essays, references or letters of recommendation and personal interviews.
