Working adults seeking information about maintaining healthy relationships with their family and employer while pursuing an MBA degree can receive up-to-date tips and advice from the invaluable resources at MBA-Business-Schools.com, a comprehensive online business school directory. Weekly columns for non-traditional MBA students and online degree participants explore the advantages of attending self-paced programs.
Older MBA students are today's norm, according to a recent column by MBA-Business-Schools.com writer Karen Lawson. According to the column, "Nontraditional Students: Adult Students Seeking a Degree" (http://www.mba-business-schools.com/articles/mbas_for_working_adults), MBA schools teach vital skills in business, management, and marketing that drive success in virtually every workplace.
In addition to mastering their new, advanced skill sets, adult MBA program graduates are well compensated. A BizEd study on the return of investment on an MBA degree revealed that an adult worker with a pre-MBA median salary of $50,000 received an average $25,000 raise immediately following completion of their degree program.
According to former professor Wendy Croix, Ph.D., advisor to hundreds of students and MBA-Business-Schools.com correspondent, "Non-traditional students often thrive in business careers, and their real-world experience enriches their graduate study. My most committed, disciplined, and enthusiastic graduate students have been adults beyond their traditional fast-track mid-twenties."
In addition to providing columns on school search and enrollment advice helpful to non-traditional and traditional students alike, MBA-Business-Schools.com offers reviews of the latest top-selling business books, advice on professional career options, sales and marketing columns, and key information about applying work experience to your business degree program.
Lawson's column at MBA-Business-Schools.com (http://www.mba-business-schools.com/articles/mbas_for_working_adults) also informs adult students that their MBA experience need not be limited to strictly business or marketing functions. MBA program students can fine-tune their degrees with specializations in human resources, finance and accounting, international business, technology management, and more.
Other recent columns at MBA-Business-Schools.com assist student applicants in determining which schools have proper accreditation and why official accrediting agency affiliation ensures that their degrees will meet employer specifications. For adults exploring a new profession entirely, Lawson writes that "an MBA can provide a bridge of knowledge" that can connect adults with new, more rewarding careers.
