Deciding on where to obtain a graduate business education is difficult as there are
many qualified schools to choose from. Often, colleges and universities alike offer
the same base curriculum with concentrations in Marketing, Finance, Human Resources
or Management. While all of the courses will prepare you for your business career,
you may not be armed with the specific skills and knowledge base to get you in the
door and ensure your success in the industry that you choose post-graduation. All
industries are not alike. They require not only basic business acumen but also a highly
sophisticated base of knowledge in their area of market in which they each exist.
For instance, a business professional working in the medical device industry will
require an understanding in reimbursement, purchasing, clinical selling, sterilization
packaging, and FDA regulations just to name a few.
