 In addition to a higher earning potential, an advanced degree allows individuals to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive business environment

As such, a separate conversation exists for those who have already attained their degrees and are looking to further their careers in management, for instance, Mr Rémy Chiapolini, treasury manager at Paypal.

He says: “I reached a point in my career where I was just another good employee. It was hard to differentiate myself from my peers who were as talented and motivated as I was. This was when I started looking at Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes to upgrade my skills and use it as a stepping stone to venture into new industries.” Mr Chiapolini then signed up for the Executive MBA (EMBA) programme at Rutgers Business School Asia Pacific (RBSAP) and graduated in 2015.


In terms of both cost and value, is it worth pursuing an MBA?

Some people use postgraduate business education to complement technical qualifications, and to better equip themselves with the business acumen required to propel growth and manage teams more effectively.

Having graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, Mr Reuben Ong ascribed his postgraduate education to his successful career today.

Within a month of graduating from RBSAP in May 2016, he joined Takeda Pharmaceuticals Asia Pacific as a business unit manager and was recently promoted to head of commercial operations.

Says Mr Ong, “The MBA has shaped my capability to manage and lead my team better, which in turn, has to lead to growth in my career.”

"Rutgers EMBA was the right course for me as I was looking for a course where I could learn from people with diverse backgrounds. The course was a great mix of structured learning as well as real-life cases. The final capstone week was where I could put all the learning together to apply to Business Strategy as well as Corporate Strategy. I believe the course helped me to get a 360 perspective and an executive mindset that are tremendously critical for me to advance in my career."
