Earning a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Grand Canyon University’s Colangelo College of Business can add tremendous value to your resume and help you achieve your career goals. It can change the way you view your work environment and positively impact the way you think. Here are several benefits that come from the hard work and dedication that goes into earning this advanced business degree.

Gain Advanced Skills

GCU’s online MBA helps you build skills in leadership development, operations management, critical thinking and decision-making. These skills are necessary for business professionals working towards an executive or leadership position within an organization.

Specialize in Your Area of Interest

GCU offers several emphasis areas within the MBA program, including accounting, finance, health systems management or leadership. GCU also offers additional MBA emphasis areas in the fields of marketing, project management, sports business, and strategic human resource management. Finding your niche and turning your passion into a successful career is an amazing opportunity, and earning an MBA can help you achieve that goal.

Expand Your Network

Share your MBA experience with career-oriented classmates, full-time faculty members, and fully-trained adjunct instructors. GCU’s online degree programs and evening classes are small enough to create an environment that stimulates engaging and challenging class discussions between all members of the learning community. This provides you the opportunity to network and build relationships that can expand beyond the classroom.

Increase Employment Opportunities

MBA students gain the necessary skills and self-confidence to widen their range of skills to help them pursue a career as an executive, entrepreneur, director, manager or business leader. Earning an MBA allows you to expand your job responsibilities and build a career as a chief executive officer, vice president of operations or director of business and service organizations.
