Master of Business Administration

A graduate degree that represents advanced study of business. An MBA shows that the recipient has completed theoretical, and perhaps also practical, coursework in how to manage a company, construct a business model, and generally run a business. A person holding an MBA ordinarily commands a much higher starting salary than one who does not, at least in finance, consulting, and a few other sectors.
