Opportunity knocks for women with MBAs.
The UB MBA's solid value proposition means you'll earn a top-ranked MBA at a public university cost. Factor in the low cost of living in Western New York, and you'll earn an MBA from the No. 1 business school in the State University of New York (SUNY) system with lower cost, less debt and a faster ROI.
Women represent half of the workforce, but make up less than 20% of boards and 5% of CEOs among the Fortune 500.
The statistics are sobering, but these obstacles also present an opportunity for women with an MBA. Companies are looking to build more diverse leadership for the 21st century. Why? Organizations with greater levels of gender diversity have stronger financial performance and fewer governance-related issues such as bribery, corruption, shareholder battles and fraud.
As a credential, an MBA is your passport to greater things. It’s time to embrace your ambition. With an MBA, you will learn how businesses operate, whether you want to run a company or start your own. You will advance your leadership instincts into leadership skills to provide problem solving in the real world.
Investing in your education will pay immediate and lifelong dividends. And Bloomberg notes that “an MBA may be the professional degree with the quickest ROI in the U.S.”
Invest in yourself. The Forté Foundation examined how getting an MBA can dramatically impact women’s pay and position within their industry and organization.
