MBA vs. master's degree in project management: what's the difference?

When doing your research for a project management degree, you’ll notice that there are MBA programs with project management specializations, and master’s degrees in project management alone. There are differences between MBA degrees vs. master's degrees, and they mainly come down to versatility.

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) offers a wider range of executive-level leadership skills compared to a master’s degree in project management. With an MBA, you’ll be equipped not just for advanced project management roles, but for leading project management teams at a high level. This can prepare you to compete for a broader range of jobs once you start your search.

Additionally, Herzing offers a dual concentration option for MBA students, so you can combine a concentration in project management with one in healthcare management, technology management, or data analytics—just to name a few. This offers added expertise for project management leadership roles in a specific industry that interests you.
