To help local and international graduates better meet rising job market demands, MDIS announces the opening of three intakes for their 2023 MBA programme awarded by the University of Sunderland, United KingdomSINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 27 December 2022 – The Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) is opening its admission window for their Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme in 2023 come January. The Master’s degree will be awarded by the University of Sunderland, UK and is aimed at graduates in pursuit of senior roles within commercial and public sector organisations.
Local and international degree holders looking to obtain an MBA from one of Singapore’s oldest not-for-profit professional institutes for lifelong learning can enrol in either one of their three upcoming intakes: March, May/June, September.
Applicants must be at least 19 years of age and have a relevant degree, or an equivalent professional qualification. Those currently in senior roles but do not possess a formal academic background can also apply for the MBA programme; such applications will be considered by academic judgement.
The Advantages Posed by an MBA Today
According to the Winter 2021 NACE Salary Survey carried out in the United States of America, the Class of 2021 MBA graduates are projected to receive average starting salaries of US$87,966, 11.3% higher than that of their 2020 counterparts, and between 22% to 40% higher than business Bachelor’s degree graduates. With the market continually filling up with a wide array of business-related certifications, it is evident that the MBA continues to stand out in spite of the influx, likely due to its innate credibility and unique blend of core theory and practical skills.
MBA graduates in and beyond Singapore can not only enjoy higher expected salaries, but also the futureproofing of their careers, the means to pivot professions to explore new industries or functions, a highly accelerated career path, and the expanded and more diverse network presented by global alumni communities.
The MBA is also increasingly being recognised among recruiters worldwide as a valuable credential for managerial positions and essential decision-making roles. As markets get increasingly competitive and employers become more demanding in hiring candidates with the appropriate skillsets, the MBA qualification can prove an invaluable asset for jobseekers looking for career opportunities and progression.
