MBA jobs: What can you do with an MBA?

What can you do with an MBA degree? Pretty much anything you set your mind to. An MBA prepares you for jobs in a variety of industries and roles. Typical MBA jobs include:

  • Finance Manager
  • Financial Advisor
  • HR Manager
  • Investment Banker
  • IT Manager
  • Management Analyst
  • Management Consultant
  • Marketing Manager
  • Operations Manager

Employers love hiring MBA graduates and many recruit on campus. According to GMAC’s Corporate Recruiters Survey, 91 percent of global employers plan to hire MBAs in 2021 despite the impact of COVID-19.

Increasingly, MBA graduates can be found in industries ranging from healthcare to nonprofits working for both multinationals and startups, and many start businesses of their own. In 2020, 18 percent of Stanford Graduate School of Business graduates dedicated themselves to entrepreneurship and launched their own ventures.

Companies that hire the most MBAs include the Big Three management consulting firms, Bain, BCG, and McKinsey; Big Tech firms like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft; and accounting firms like Accenture, Deloitte, and EY.

Several years after graduation, MBAs progress to senior, executive-level jobs. Many Fortune 500 CEOs—including the CEOs of Apple, JP Morgan, Microsoft, and Walmart—have MBAs.

“When we hire an MBA grad, the global perspective and diversity of experiences they have allows them to plug right into Bain, and any of our capability areas, and start helping our clients succeed in their industries,” says Keith Bevans, global head of consultant recruiting at Bain & Company.
