Cuts are being made everywhere. Graduates, those who have been made redundant, and even those who took a career break are going to find it harder and harder to get into large companies. So what are they to do?

The solution is simple… go back to school. In the 80’s and 90’s recessions there was a clear trend towards people going back to higher education, and it looks like the trend is repeating itself. It makes sense in several ways- for one, graduates and those out of work ‘sit out’ this period of turmoil, and more importantly they better themselves and enhance their prospects of future employment.

 For those who are committed to a career in business and more importantly management, it may be an invaluable time to consider studying for an MBA. A Masters in Business Administration is a qualification that explores the theory of management, exposing students to a wide spectrum of modules, from organizational behavior, economics, operations management, international business, marketing, accounting, IT management, supply chain management and project management.

There are many business schools located worldwide, and you will often find that business schools have a much higher number of international students than you would with universities. This is great for improving your communications skills and also forging invaluable contacts. If you live and want to study in the UK, it is a good idea to ensure you study for an MBA with a school that is accredited by the Association of MBA’s. A good school to consider if you are based in London is the Ashridge Business School, which is based on beautiful grounds just outside of London. They offer both full time and part time MBA courses.

In such a moment of turmoil, when it is quite clear that the structure of the global economy needs to be completely reconceived, it could be an exciting and pioneering time to be at a business school.  It would give you the opportunity to be better prepared for the all encompassing changes that are looming- Ashridge Business School are experts on change management, whether it is organisational or personal. They offer several modules in ‘leading change’ as part of their MBA courses. What better a way to impress a potential employer than by showing you are ready to help lead your prospective company into a new future.
