General MBA Graduate Programs
MBA students learn about the practical application of business theory, and how to be leaders in organizations. MBA grad schools are diverse in their areas of focus. It is possible to obtain a general MBA, but other MBA programs focus on specific topics of business such as marketing, global management, entrepreneurship, accounting, or ecommerce. MBA students often come from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds; an undergraduate degree in business is not always a prerequisite for admission.
Many MBA students decide to work while attending school, the need for schedule flexibility has caused an increase in the popularity of online MBA programs, and many accredited institutions have adapted their MBA programs into an online format.
