Today’s job market is competitive, and it is becoming more and more apparent that simply having a bachelor’s degree or just gaining work experience is no longer sufficient.
The Steinbeis MBA is a broad, practice-oriented management course that gives you a solid business foundation, which is imperative to move up the ladder in your current company or move on to a higher-ranking position within a new one.
At SMI, we understand the importance of working your way up the ladder and commend those with the perseverance and grit to have progressed thus far in their careers. While years of experience working within your chosen field is important to prove that you can perform well in such an environment, however, our MBA proves to your potential employer that you have had the formal training and therefore possess the necessary skills to work within your chosen field — whether you have a bachelor’s degree or not.
So, if you are someone who went straight into the workforce and doesn’t have the time to study for a 3- or 4-year bachelor’s degree, then this one-year MBA program is for you. Learn the basics of business, close any gaps in your knowledge, and build on your strengths during this thorough management foundation — so that you can gain the confidence, the knowledge, and the proof you need to progress in your career.
