In 2011 to 2012, more than a quarter of U.S. masters students graduated with an advanced business degree.
The MBA degree is becoming more widely accepted by employers, and for graduates, can garner them a higher salary.
What are MBA graduates learning?
The Huffington Post says there are several life lessons to be gained from a business education.
- Live outside your comfort zone. Taking risks will help you find different business opportunities and learn through experience.
- Don’t work with people you don’t like. You spend too many hours at work to be around those you don’t get along with.
- Embrace people from different backgrounds. Everyone can bring unique experiences to the table, encouraging creativity.
- Don’t worry what others think of you. Be kind and do your best, but don’t let others’ feelings harm you.
