Challenge your mind with a highly respected degree that obtains specific leadership skills. Here are a couple of statics to prove the benefits of an MBA:
M.B.A. students who graduated in 2004 received an average of 2.6 job offers and an average annual salary of $84,030 before bonuses.
U.S. M.B.A. program graduates in 2000 earned an 82% pay increase over their pre-business-school salaries (SLM Corporation, 2009).
An 82% pay increase and $84,000 average annual salary is all the convincing I need to pursue my MBA.

After the training process was over, that same individual was promoted, he became her boss. This story just shows how important education can be to your career. Promotions are an incentive to purse an MBA. An MBA will prepare you with different leaderships and organizational skills to be director, manager, supervisor, or owner. At the University of Phoenix, only 12.9% of students of students are enrolled in a Graduate Business and Management program (University of Phoenix, Fact Book, 2007). Just think, of the educational advantage you would have over employees at the company you work for.
