The MBA programs with the strongest ROI are the ones that prepare their students to meet the challenges of their time. As businesses and industries evolve, and new technologies continue to revolutionize how people live and work, it is perhaps more important than ever for business schools to teach students to become self-starters and innovators with expanded skill sets. Here are the top six MBA trends you need to watch out for when choosing a business school.

1. The rise of entrepreneurialism

Entrepreneurial MBAs have grown in popularity over recent months, as generations y and z prioritize values of entrepreneurship and independence, and firms in increasing numbers recognize the value of innovation and autonomy when hiring graduates. The best business schools work closely with students to help them achieve their professional potential and realize their career goals.

2. Action-based learning

When choosing an MBA, you need, of course, to make sure that it will prepare you for a long and fruitful career in business. Ask yourself: will this program require me to apply my expertise to real-life situations and challenges? Will it provide me with useful industry contacts and practical knowledge? EU Business School’s courses and teaching methods have been specifically designed to help students apply their business expertise to real-life situations, in preparation for leadership roles after they graduate

3. Learn how to differentiate yourself through personal branding

When hunting for your dream job or starting up your own business, you will be expected to prove your value as a thought leader and industry expert. This is why your MBA course needs to teach you how to capitalize on the latest online marketing strategies to impress recruiters and investors. Any course you take should help you to develop those invaluable soft skills that are crucial for a successful career in business – from performing a convincing elevator pitch to perfecting your social media branding, these are the skills that you cannot afford to do without. 

4. Flexible learning

The demand for a flexible MBA continues to rise, as growing numbers of professionals recognize the appeal of developing their expertise without taking a career break. EU Business School’s one-year Online MBA program blends flexible schedules with e-learning tools to cater for students with full-time commitments. You will have access to a web portal with study materials, live video lectures and forums 24 hours a day – meaning you can work on your MBA anywhere, any time.

5. Specialize

MBA specializations are making a big comeback this year, as recruiters expect to hire graduates with in-depth management experience of the industry in which they seek to work. Whether you’re interested in pursuing an MBA in Global Banking & Finance, Human Resources or Leisure & Tourism, an MBA specialization could help to fast-track your career.

6. Internationalization

In today’s increasingly competitive jobs market, experience of working or studying abroad could help to differentiate you from other applicants. At a globally connected institution such as EU Business School you’ll have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad (37% of EU students spend time living and studying in another city) and, once you graduate, you’ll have access to a network of 25,000 alumni working internationally. EU Business School’s community is made up of over 100 nationalities, with 98% of students and faculty members speaking more than two languages.
