An online Masters in Business Administration (MBA) is recognised as a prestigious postgraduate qualification throughout the world, with a host of wonderful opportunities available to graduates

According to a 2015 Financial Times poll, approximately two-thirds of participants reported that they had secured job offers and promotions since graduating from their MBA. As you take stock of your own achievements to date and assess your life goals and ambitions, here are seven career options that could be within your reach as an online MBA programme graduate:

  1. Entrepreneur
    If you have a great business idea and the drive and ambition to not only succeed, but to lead the way for others, then setting up your own business might be a really good option for you.

    Besides learning about the practicalities of running a business and getting your product to market, many Master of Business degrees focus on leadership skills as part of their curricula.
  2. Financial Analyst
    Senior financial analysts are often MBA graduates hired straight after university with the ability to gather macroeconomic data information about specific companies in order to make business-sector recommendations. Some analysts work as investment advisors, either independently or with a brokerage firm. Depending on the size of the company, a financial analyst could be managing multimillion-pound portfolios.
  3. Human Resources Manager
    If HR is your specialism, then headhunting, interviewing and screening are probably second nature to you. An MBA, however, could give you the holistic overview you need to play a more strategic part in your organisation, advising your CEO at a higher level and impacting change with the future in mind.
  4. Business Manager
    If moving from the floor to a managerial position is your current career goal, an MBA could give you the skills and validation you need to prove you have what it takes. Business managers very often contribute directly to the profitability and continued viability of a business.
  5. CEO
    As a Chief Executive Officer, you are the highest-ranking person in the company or institution, and ultimately you are responsible for making managerial decisions. An MBA can give you the overview you need to recognise business trends in order to make the right strategic decisions.
  6. Lecturer in Business
    As a Master of Business Administration, you might consider imparting your knowledge and professional experience to others, either as a lecturer in further education or as a private consultant in your own specialist field.
  7. Product Manager
    Product managers investigate and oversee the life cycle of the product. They are often the unsung heroes who help create strategies that ensure the product fully meets the needs of the consumer. This role might also include marketing, forecasting, and profit & loss responsibilities.

According to a GMAC end-of-year poll conducted worldwide, in 2016, 85% of employers plan to hire MBA graduates, with many expecting to hire more than they did in 2015. So with a bright future for MBA graduates, bear in mind that online university gives you the flexibility to study at a time that suits you while you continue advancing your career.
