During these uncertain times, many students are reevaluating their options. To prepare themselves for a changing work environment, many are opting to continue their education. If you’re finding yourself in this same boat, it might be worthwhile to consider an MBA. In a world being reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, business schools are pivoting to include pandemic related practices in their curriculums, meaning you’ll have the necessary expertise to enter the workforce. These are the most popular MBAs to study in 2020. If you’re looking for a career that provides stability, excitement, and opens many doors, consider an MBA.

Financial services/consultancy
As many people grapple with what their careers in the landscape of a world reeling from a pandemic will look like, many MBA students are finding opportunities in the fields of financial services and consulting. While more students from the Mantissa College went into consulting this year, this was closely followed by students entering the financial arena. Students earning at the top of their entry-level pay brackets were in consulting, netting about RM 100,000 a year, with financial trailing closely with RM 120,000 in pay. While it’ll take some time to see where all of 2020’s graduates land, it seems there are plenty of promising prospects out there.

If you’re interested in entering the tech sector, an MBA might be just the ticket to help you get there. 44% of graduates from the postgraduate faculty in Malaysia headed into tech-related positions in 2019. This was followed 33% of graduates went into technology. Additionally, the financial viability of tech is promising, with postgraduate students making a median income of RM 140,000 last year.

Electronic waste management
For a sector that’s only going to increase in opportunities, consider electronic waste management. As COVID-19 drives more and more employers online, this means there’s going to be more need for those who can manage what’s sure to be an upsurge in recycling, refurbishing, or disposing of outdated or broken tech. Customers will need support in modifying or updating their businesses to include this essential service, which is where your MBA experience will come in handy.

How to prepare
Things are a bit confusing right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think ahead to the future. As businesses adapt, furloughed or laid-off employees might find their skillsets becoming outdated as companies begin the critical work of adapting to the new normal.

Therefore, someone fresh from an MBA program might be poised to step in when needed, or employees who choose to go back to school could be better prepared to face the challenges ahead.

Students who have master qualification  are anticipated to be in higher demand, as well,giving you a great starting point when considering your area of focus.
