Higher Education Business Management Staff and the MBA: A Small Study Analysing Intrinsic and Extrinsic Benefits
Gander, Michelle
Journal of Education for Business, v90 n3 p139-144 2015
Higher education is a key sector for the United Kingdom contributing over £70 billion of output. It functions in an increasingly complex operating, regulatory, and legislative environment that has led to an increased need for effective nonacademic business managers. This study evaluates the benefits of a specialist master of business administration (MBA) in higher education management in the UK. The results indicate that the MBA provides intrinsic benefits such as opportunities to improve management practice and increases in confidence levels in the workplace. It also provides extrinsic benefits of increased pay.
