Creating a business case spelling out the benefits of the MBA for your employer is vital for securing study sponsorship. Whether it’s verbal or written, here are 6 key points to include in your proposal:
1. Tailored to your organisation’s needs
With the Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) Global MBA, you can tailor your study programme to fit your organisation’s specific business needs.
For example, you can focus your studies around different concentrations – e.g. Corporate Strategy; Innovation & Entrepreneurship; Finance; or Digital Business – that are specifically relevant to your organisation.
2. Immediate return on investment
Bayes Business School’s hands-on approach to learning will enable you to apply your newly acquired knowledge and skills to your workplace immediately.
The Global MBA’s Business Mastery Project module, for example, gives you the opportunity to complete a research project on your organisation and address a real-life strategic problem.
