3 Reasons Why The MBA Is A Global Qualification


The Master of Business Administration (MBA) has been helping businesspeople around the world advance in their career for many years. With such high achieving graduates, there is no hesitation in saying that the MBA is a global qualification. As an acronym which requires little explanation, the MBA has become one of the world’s most sought after degrees, furthering its global status. If you’re wondering how the MBA is a global qualification, read below for three of the main reasons.

1. Internationally recognised

When choosing your MBA provider, it’s important to ensure that the degree is appropriately accredited. Accreditation is not something to overlook; it helps to distinguish your degree from the rest, and ensures that it has value around the world. Those who graduate with an accredited degree can be assured that their qualification is of relevance, is highly respected and is recognised on both a national and global scale. An accredited MBA is a global qualification which will be recognised by employers around the world. The MBA is one of the very few degrees which is able to be used on a global scale, and therefore has great value to those who possess it.

2. Worldwide delivery

The MBA is delivered in the majority of the world’s countries, by some of the most prestigious universities ever to exist. Higher education providers such as The Australian Institute of Business are taking the degree even further by establishing Teaching Centre partners around the world in countries such as Namibia, Egypt and Trinidad & Tobago, further extending the borders of the MBA. The fact that one degree can have such value in so many locations further enforces that the MBA is a global qualification.

3. Work anywhere in the world

Regardless of where you would like to live and work, employers around the world recognise the value of the MBA. The three letters not only represent the hard work required to get the degree, but also vast knowledge of business administration, with skills including leadership, marketing, finance and human resources. The MBA is a global qualification as it is one of the few degrees which is not only recognised, but also valued very highly in the workplace. It is a degree which will be high regarded in the majority of the world’s locations, from the USA to South Africa or China.
