Transcript Need For MBAs Waning MBAs may not be in demand in the workforce as they were in previous years, but the degree is still valuable in the long run, according to a counseling and career service administrator. "The job market has become more difficult for them," said David Small, assistant vice president for counseling and career services. He attributes this to three factors: fewer banks are hiring MBAs, the stock market's effect on the financial industry and the number of MBA holders seeking jobs. The MBA, masters of business administration, is a valuable degree because it is a general degree that can be applied to almost any industry or business, Small said. Nationwide, about 65,000 people earned MBAs last year, as compared to 20,000 in 1970. "The supply is so great that employers are hiring MBAs for positions that used to require only a BBAs (bachelor of business administration). Companies are increasingly saying MBAs with no experience are worth no more than BBAs," Small said. These jobs included entry level management trainee programs, especially with consulting firms, banks, investment firms and industry. But, visiting instructor Philip Gibbs said he hasn't seen any indication of a decreased demand for MBAs. "MBAs with no experience have to go through the same learning process that anyone coming out of school goes through," Gibbs said. Small said, "I do feel that an MBA pays off in the long run," because to the additional skills taught in the program and the "license or credential that will open doors in business." "My advise to anyone considering an MBA is to get the experience along with the MBA, as opposed to going for the MBA full time," Small said. The College of Business Administration ranked 32nd in salaries for MBA graduates and number one in salary increases for MBAs in 1986, Small said. The average salary of 1986 MBA graduates was $31,992, said Boyd Armstrong, a career counselor. This amount represents an 18 percent increase over the previous year's average salary of $30,000. "Even though we don't have the highest dollar amount, we had the highest increase," Armstrong said. Gibbs said the difference between the MBA and the BBA is that MBAs study material more in depth. Most MBA candidates have a couple of years in the workforce and can draw on that experience. "The coursework has more meaning due to that," he said. — Claire Blondeau j u N I O R S Carmen Rodriguez Michelle Rodriguez Ricky Rodriguez Adebola Rojugbokan Gary Rusk Saeed Sadrzadeh Alfonso Sanchez Thomas Sartwelle Zaide Schelb Shelley Schenk Greg Self Mairim Sera Suraja Seriki Mohammed Shoaib 98 The University Of Houston
