Master’s in Business Management

While the study of management generally encompasses each and every business or organizational activity that occurs within an organization, the practice of business management may vary subtly in that it deals with specific aspects of that organizational activity – including human resource management, administrative leadership and more.

Career Opportunities with this Degree

Two degree possibilities are most common for those specifically seeking a master’s in business management: a master of science in business management, as well as a master of arts in human services, with a specialization in business management. Job growth for those who obtain such a degree may vary by specific career choice. For those who end up serving in a human resource capacity – say as a corporate trainer – employment is projected to grow by 22 percent through 2018. However, those who seek opportunities as an administrative manager may see a stagnant growth model. In any case, an advanced degree is considered a strong qualifier for employment in such highly competitive settings.

Jobs & Salaries with This Degree

While students who complete either type of business management program will be well-prepared for career advancement as organizational managers – even at or leading up to the executive level – potential job opportunities as marketing consultants, corporate trainers, or account representatives should present themselves. Corporate trainers can expect a median annual salary of more than $51,000, while administrative managers and general and operations managers can expect median salaries of approximately $73,500 and $91,500 annually.

Requirements for Earning this Degree

While an MS in business management prepares students to manage a firm or organization’s technical initiatives and short- and long-term operations, an MA in human services with a specialization in business differs in that it serves to help students study the correlation between human behavior and organizational success. Students in both types of programs – which generally require a bachelor’s degree prior to admission – will study strategic marketing, finance, and corporate responsibility, as well as managerial decision making, positive leadership practices, and more.
