Why Pursue an MBA?

by Dr. Richard C. Thompson, PhD
Professor, NCU School of Business & MBA Lead Faculty

The ultimate test of your education is what it does for you in the job market. When we talk to our advisory board, they expect anyone with a business degree to be able to communicate in today’s business environment, understand the breadth of the industry, help the company expand its markets, and deliver intelligent, research-based business solutions.

An MBA helps you get all this. It expands the fundamentals you learned on the job to make you ready to take the next step in your career.

With an MBA from NCU, you will get foundational business knowledge, but you also learn skills that align with what employers are looking for.
