The MBA Isn’t The Only Hot Business Degree Right Now

Applications to the world’s top MBA programs look set to reach record levels over the next year, with many schools already reporting double-digit growth as they extended final round deadlines in the spring and summer. Wharton has seen a 21% increase for the incoming class, making it the largest entering cohort in the school’s history. And, after pushing its final application deadline back by a whole 51 days, Columbia has reported an increase of 18%, breaking a two-year slide in applications. Looking beyond the U.S., INSEAD saw a 57% jump in R2 applications back in May 2020, while Switzerland’s IMD Business School extended its own application deadline for the January 2021 intake with the intention of enrolling its largest ever MBA class.

While there’s no doubt that an MBA from one of the world’s top business schools is in high demand right now, it’s not the only graduate business degree

ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business Offers Accountancy Master’s Degree Programs With Data and Analytics Emphasis and CPA Exam Prep

TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Master of Accountancy (MACC) and Master of Taxation (MTax) programs from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University offer a data and analytics emphasis while preparing students to pass the CPA exam before either program ends.

Students can complete the MACC or MTax program in nine months, learning how to navigate today’s highly complex and data-centric audit, tax, and financial consulting environments. Also, thanks to a partnership with Surgent CPA Review, both programs provide an excellent foundation for CPA exam prep, meaning participants and their peers can study for, take, and pass the exam while still in either program. The programs also have been redesigned to allow students to customize the coursework to their specific interests.

Masters in management school alliances offer a degree of difference

When Rebeca Ehrnrooth wanted international experience to supplement the management training she was offered at the Stockholm School of Economics in her native Sweden, she joined an innovative programme offering the chance to continue her studies at Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

She became part of the Global Alliance in Management Education (Cems) — formerly the Community of European Management Schools — a pioneer in a growing trend of partnerships between business schools to enrich students’ experience. It offers training at its different business schools, and the work placements on offer and network of graduates remain powerful attractions for those who compete to attend its “masters within a masters” — an approach that other alliances have since sought to emulate.

Two decades later, Ehrnrooth works for a sustainable investment fund in London, and oversees the alumni network she joined that continues to support her and her peers. “Wherever you go, you

Men who have taken a Masters degree in English earn 30 per cent less than if they had not, data shows

Men who do a Masters degree in English earn 30 per cent less than if they had not by their mid-30s, the Institute for Fiscal Studies has found.  

Some postgraduate courses – such as law, business and economics – generate a positive return just over a decade later, according to research commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE).  

Men and women who studied these courses earn up to 25 per cent more by the time they are aged 35 than if they had not taken them.  

But a large number of arts and humanities postgraduate courses leave both male and female graduates worse off, including languages, creative arts and history where earnings can be over 20 per cent less.  

Having done an arts undergraduate degree, “doubling down” by going on to a masters in the same field seems to result in large negative returns, the report said.
