A new article entitled -- "Executive MBA Programs Can Help You Become A Business Consultant" at MBA-Business-Schools.com describes the training needed to help transform entrepreneurs into valued business consultants (http://www.mba-business-schools.com/articles/2007/07/executive-mba-programs-can-help-you-become-a-business-consultant.php). MBA-Business-Schools.com is an online business school directory with helpful articles and links to top MBA business schools.
Businesses, nonprofits and government agencies rely on expert advice from trained, experienced business consultants. The job of business consultants is "to observe every aspect of a company -- from management to support and service staff -- and then work with executives to suggest changes to organizational structure," according to the MBA-Business-Schools.com article. Regardless of a consultant's experience, the way to become familiar with all the varied, important functions of a business is to get training or a degree at an MBA business school.
"Not all sectors require completion of an MBA program to get an entry level consulting position," says the MBA-Business-Schools.com article. "Many government agencies will hire applicants with a business or organizational bachelor's degree.
"However," the article continues, "competition for top executive consultant positions is high in the corporate world; so many would-be consultants find an MBA program essential to success."

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, business consultants -- also known as management consultants and management analysts -- make up a third of all consultants, and their numbers are projected to increase 68 percent between 2004 and 2014. Whether the consultant works for a consulting firm or freelances for a business or government agency, the greatest demand is and will continue to be for consultants with a business education from a top business school.
Most top business schools give credit for related work experience and enable students to acquire a business education or MBA degree at their own speed and on their own schedule, whether that means evening and weekend classes or online courses.
