What specializations are available in a UK MBA without work experience?

Many students who study an MBA in the UK without work experience prefer to take the General MBA. The advantage is that you are exposed to all departments of business. With less or no work experience, you may not be certain about the specialist area you may wish to develop your career in.

Nearly all MBA specializations are available to study. Different universities offer different specializations. Some popular MBA specializations are:

  • MBA in Marketing
  • MBA in Finance
  • MBA in Logistics and Supply Chain Management
  • MBA in Operations
  • MBA in HR (Human Resources)

Why should I study an MBA without work experience?

There are numerous advantages of studying an MBA which requires no work experience:

  • Early entry into the career especially after gaining a Masters level degree
  • Early entry into the corporate world at entry or mid management level jobs
  • Save times – UK MBA is only for one year
  • For students who are going to join a family business, gaining such high level knowledge allows better grasping of business activities. It also happens that when you have started working, your inclination to study again may decline. This way, the entire experience of studying abroad and gaining Masters level knowledge is lost
