Want to Grow Your Career? Consider a BBA in Management

If you have not yet started your bachelor’s degree or decided upon a major, an online Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA in Management) can be a great choice. You will learn finance, management, communication, marketing and more. This is a worthwhile course of study no matter what kind of organization you would like to work in.

A BBA in Management for Working People

For people who want a more flexible degree program, there is the option of an accelerated bachelor’s degree online. This allows working students to stay in their jobs while completing a bachelor’s degree. This is a great option for people who started a bachelor’s program and never finished for one reason or another.

And what better time to finish up a degree than after you have worked in the “real world” for a few years? You have a better grasp on your talents, skills and career aspirations. Besides, a bachelor’s degree is often the minimum qualification that employers seek in new hires.

Indeed, it is very difficult to compete in today’s marketplace with only a high school diploma. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for people with only a high school diploma was 4.1 percent in 2018, compared to 2.2 percent for those with a bachelor’s degree.

A Business Degree to Kick-Start a Promotion

Even people who have already landed jobs can benefit from earning a BBA in Management. It is one way to be considered more seriously for a promotion. If you feel that your career has stagnated and your options are limited, completing your bachelor’s with a focus on management is a solid and practical way to move ahead of the competition. According to “College is Just the Beginning” published by Georgetown University, someone with a bachelor’s degree is statistically far more likely to get promoted than someone without the qualification.

Plus, there is high demand for college-educated workers. In 2019, the unemployment rate for people with at least a bachelor’s degree has been under 2.5 percent all year (as of published date), compared to just under 4 percent for high school graduates without a college degree. Such data confirms that earning your bachelor’s degree is a smart decision for now and the future.
