How important is a Master’s degree in business management?

As discussed briefly in a previous FAQ, obtaining a master’s degree could land you a senior position in a Fortune 500 company.

Sometimes the decision to continuing your education and obtaining a master’s isn’t made early on in your education.  It’s not necessary to make this decision right away. You may decide to obtain your bachelor’s and then your master’s as just a natural course for you or you could even be fortunate enough to have your employer send you back to school to obtain your master’s to advance within the company.

A master’s degree in business management can certainly make you more marketable to potential employers and can significantly boost your success in the workforce. According to, one of the top 10 Careers Where A Master’s Degree Pays Off, is a management career, stating that general managers with a master’s degree makes, on average, $17,428.18 more than ones with only a four year bachelor’s degree.
