Question

what is the benefit of a MBA degree to a student, who has already earned a degree in business administration? Especially considering a German graduate who has earned a German diploma which usually took considerably more time than e.g. a bachelor's degree.
Dear Sir or Madam,
what is the benefit of a MBA degree to a student, who has already earned a degree in business administration? Especially considering a German graduate who has earned a German diploma which usually took considerably more time than e.g. a bachelor's degree.

My university considers the German diploma degree equal to a Master of Science in Business Management.

Shouldn't someone who has already spent at least 4.5 years in business studies own the skills other students without a business administration degree learn during their first and only year of a MBA program if his first university has done a good job?

I am curious because a lot of German business graduates seem to believe a MBA is worth the effort and recruiters seem to acknowledge it.


Answer from Cass:

Thank you for your mail.

An MBA is a master's degree, and so at a different level from an undergraduate degree. Some of the material may be similar to that which you covered in your undergraduate degree, but again it is at a different level.

Our MBA is taken by experienced managers who have an average of 8 years of post-degree professional experience; the average age is 31. On a reputable MBA programme, you will learn a lot from your classmates and their experiences.

Of course, if you feel that an MBA is not for you, then we would of course respect your view.

I hope this helps

Best regards,

Answer from Said Business School:

Dear sir/Madam

Thank you for your enquiry - however I am not sure that I fully understand the nature of your questions. What I can say is that it would be unusual for a candidate who already has an MBA to be admitted her to do a second. However, if your reasons for this are clear and convincing exceptions can be made. I would suggest that for more information on the Oxford MBA that you refer to our website www.ox.ac.uk

Best wishes,

Answer from London Business School:

Thank you for your message.

It is not just the study involved, but mainly the interaction with other experienced professionals that our students learn from. Students learn as much from each other as they do from our world class Faculty. Also, all courses have a truly global focus.

Along with the summer internship period, our MBA includes several shorter projects, often paid consulting work, which give the opportunity to practise what has been learned.

Our students set up and run very active and high performing Student Clubs. For example our Private Equity Club run a conference that is regarded as a sector leader in London. And the same with our Entrepreneurs Club.

If you are hoping to work in an international capacity and perhaps even work overseas, no other MBA gives students the international contacts and global business capabilities as London business School.
