Why would an employer consider an MBA grad with no management experience over a highly experienced BA candidate?
As mentioned in the question above, by taking an MBA you show potential employers that you have developed Analytical and decision making skills, which are essential for businesses today, as many companies looking for individuals who can make decisions and maximise returns. So, it makes more sense to hire an MBA graduate than a BA graduate. However, as a part of MBA course you will also build an extensive list of contacts with the industry and open up to lots of new job opportunities. For example, did you know that 60% of managerial jobs in the UK are not advertised anywhere!
