With experience of 7 years working at different levels of different organisation, I feel the urge of MBA to get into the organisational hierarchy.
Presently, I am working in New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans in Boston as a payroll and disbursement manager. I worked as human resource administrator, payroll manager and disbursements manager, which is mostly related to human resource management and financial management. But earlier, I had experience as an office manager and also in keeping books for 4 years at Schwartz and Nystrom in Boston, MA. In accordance to the experience, the courses related to human resource management are MBA610 Human Capitals, where the subject offered under the category would be Recruitment and Selection of human beings, MBA 615 Job analysis: from job description to job evaluation, MBA 620, which includes organisational behaviour and leadership, MBA 635, human resources: best practices and techniques, etc.
There are courses regarding the entrepreneurship, where a shift will be taking place, an individual can start his own business with his own creative thinking and thoughts. Few of the certificate programs of MBA are available through which I can relate to my experiences. Although, the degree and certificate courses differ but both utilise the same subjects for my career advancement and which will be great for me. Nonetheless, MBA will provide me a platform through which my career will be advanced along with a new managerial position and increased salary.
I will be able to solve the real life business problems in any organisation as the course would make me adept with several case studies and it will provide me confidence to handle my job function in a much better way. So, I think the MBA course in Bay Path College would not only be exciting for my career but also my life.
