COVID-19 and your MBA application
Is it worth pursuing an MBA? It’s the question we’re hearing the most from BusinessBecause users right now. The coronavirus pandemic has closed business school campuses, shifted admissions timelines, and forced MBA students around the world into studying online.
However, we at BusinessBecause believe that the long-term value of an MBA will remain.
The MBA is still the world’s most popular graduate management degree. Employers hire thousands of MBA graduates each year. 93% of MBA alumni say they would still pursue their degree knowing what they know now. Often, it’s at a time of crisis when applications to MBA programs increase.
In our MBA Application Guide 2020-21, we explain how COVID-19 may make applying for MBA programs more competitive this cycle, with more candidates and deferrals filling up available seats.
