Global Demand for Business School Graduates Grows

Global demand for business school graduates is higher than in previous years, answering the important question, why study business at University?

Employers across the world are planning on hiring more business school students than ever before. In particular, MBA students are expected to attract higher salaries. 84 percent of companies in the world are planning to hire new MBAs, up from 74 percent in 2014.

This all comes from a new survey conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council, drawing responses from 748 employers in 47 countries around the world.

The results also indicate that employers in the Asia-Pacific are likely to consider online courses as an alternative to mainstream University courses. 9 in 10 employers cite a demonstrated track record, strong communication skills, and solid technical or quantitative skills as their top three selection criteria.

This comes as good news for students studying Ducere’s world-class business courses, which offer online business education tailored to meet the demands of employers.

Our courses are practical, offering students who study the Bachelor’s and MBA the opportunity to work on real business cases with companies such as NAB and PwC, and even not-for-profits such as Save the Children.

Students are taught by a range of online global leaders, such as the Professor of Leadership Development at the Harvard Business School, Mr. Robert Kaplan, or the founder of the USA Network, Ms. Kay Koplovitz. This gives students access to the best minds in business, providing real-world examples they can apply to job-interviews and work scenarios.

The courses also equip aspiring entrepreneurs with the tools to create and run their own business, with this even being a mandatory requirement for Bachelor of Entrepreneurship students.

Graduates can potentially finish their course with a fully fledged business.

All students will end their degree with an in-depth understanding of business and be able to leverage these practical concepts for employers. The Ducere model allows students to finish their courses “work-ready”, a factor increasingly demanded by businesses looking to hire graduates.

So why study business at University? To get more work-ready.

Ducere’s partner institution, The University of Canberra, are delighted to be a part of Ducere’s vision to prepare more work-ready students in Australia.

“The University of Canberra is well known for its creativity and innovation. In launching the new MBA Innovation and Leadership with our partner, Ducere, the University is building on this reputation, offering what is undoubtedly the most original course for the managers of our future. It is a game changer for management education in Australia.”
The University of Canberra’s Vice-Chancellor, Mr. Stephen Parker.
