Why You Should Pursue An Online Management Degree Today

Management Degree

Many different businesses continue to need top-tier management—which makes a bachelor’s in management a highly pursued degree. 

Since adult learners now outnumber traditional 18-year-old students, higher education institutions continue to create flexible 100% online degree programs to fill the need. 

An online management degree from Geneva College can provide numerous benefits to adult learners including a robust skillset, new career opportunities, and overall flexibility.    

You’ll Gain Transferable Skills 

As a job seeker, it benefits you to have an abundance of skills to show on your cover letter, resume, and in interviews. 

According to FlexJobs, “All transferable skills are important. However, employers seek out some transferable skills over others. These are the skills that you’ll use in any job and can turn you from a good employee into an invaluable employee.”

These transferable skills include:

  • Problem-solving
  • Critical thinking
  • Adaptability
  • Relationship building
  • Leadership

A Bachelor of Professional Studies in Management fills your toolbelt with transferable skills that companies want, so you become an invaluable employee in a wide range of industries. When you gain a solid foundation in these skills and more with a bachelor’s degree, then there will be no stopping you from increasing career opportunities and achieving your career goals. 

You’ll Gain Career Opportunities

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there are going to be about 476,000 new business and financial operations jobs available between 2019-2029. The field is projected to grow by 5%—faster than average for all occupations. 

These are a few job roles (among many others), business management graduates may pursue

  • Business Analyst
  • Sales Manager
  • Account Executive
  • Administrative Manager

Here are 3 more reasons an online management degree is a fit for greater opportunities. 

1.  There’s opportunity to earn more money

The numbers don’t lie in this recent survey completed by the BLS which shows the difference in earnings among high school graduates, associate degree holders, and bachelor degree holders. 

Those who hold a bachelor’s degree make almost double their high school graduate counterparts with a $1,305 median usual weekly earnings. They also make about $370 more a week than associate degree holders. 

2. There’s opportunity to move up in your current company

Geneva’s online coursework is directly applicable to current business needs and leadership. You can use these new skill sets at work while you finish your management degree. You could catch the eye of your current employer and possibly earn a promotion before you graduate.    

3. There’s opportunity to pursue entrepreneurship

Earning a higher degree in management can give you the confidence and the knowledge to become an entrepreneur and finally start your own business you’ve been dreaming about. Networking with other students in your classes, professors, and alumni of the program can also pave the way for future entrepreneur opportunities.    

You’ll Gain Flexibility With an Online Education

When you work full-time, care for family members, volunteer in your community, and more, your busy life may not be flexible enough to fit the traditional on-campus learning we’re all so familiar with. 

Enter the solution to your problem—online education. 

When you enroll in online courses for a management degree, you’ll be able to:

  • Study and review course materials in your own time, as long as deadlines are met
  • Keep a manageable course load
  • Learn unique perspectives from peers who are also furthering their education 
  • Have access to experienced, dedicated professors who truly care about your success 

An online bachelor program allows you to continue your everyday commitments while furthering your education.
