Industry change

After many years in a certain industry, some professionals decide to change careers. However, they are not expecting a pay cut or a position at the junior level. An MBA can help these professionals transition into industries seamlessly. MBA programs cover a wide range of business areas, from management information systems to human resources and marketing. Hence, MBA graduates can choose any of these fields as their new career.

Business school is very expensive. The average two-year MBA program costs $60,000 in tuition alone. Funding for MBA programs is also difficult. Teaching assistant (TA) and research assistant (RA) positions are very limited in the business school. Therefore, the student has to look for scholarships to reduce his study expenses. However, there is another option.

Some employers will cover tuition as long as the employee shows an interest (or commitment) to stay with the company afterward. This funding option is also open to university employees. Many universities offer tuition reductions or waivers for employees.
