Employers want managers they can trust to make informed decisions about their department, taking into consideration how these decisions will impact all other areas of the company.

Dependability and leadership

The executive management team is busy tackling inter-departmental and big picture issues, and they need to know that department heads are able to act in the best interest of the organization and lead their department effectively–without being closely supervised. Therefore, employers seek managers who are:

  • strong leaders
  • critical thinkers
  • problem solvers
  • and knowledgeable in their sector (such as healthcare, IT, marketing, human resources or accounting).

Executives also want managers who are able to see the organization as a whole, and how their department works with all others to provide a valuable product or service to consumers.

Practical knowledge

Work experience is certainly valued by employers; it reflects that the manager has practical knowledge of the field. Industry credentials (when available) validate the manager’s knowledge, and professional organization membership demonstrates a commitment to the industry and awareness of current trends.

Education

A formal education is what binds the manager’s experience and professional affiliations together. It is through earning a post-graduate degree that a professional achieves the level of critical thinking required to combine their academic knowledge, past experience and industry networks/resources in order to apply them to the situation at hand.

Results

Once this critical-thinking process and application takes place, an MBA degree program specifically teaches the professional how the solution to one situation will affect the other operations of the business. With the addition of a management specialty, the employer recognizes the professional is not only an expert in the topic, but also has the propensity to lead, manage and motivate other employees in the organization. This additional skill set is highly desirable because it allows executives to delegate greater responsibility to that individual, further allowing the executive to focus on the most imperative and broad-spectrum concerns.
