The History of MBA Programs

What does science have to do with management? Look at the definition of an MBA, and there’s your answer.

The Master of Business Administration Degree originated in the late 1800s when corporations were looking for scientific foundations to business leadership. Originally, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth created a Master of Science in Commerce degree. Later on, Harvard started the nation’s first MBA program. In the 1950s, the first MBAs were awarded outside the US, in Canada, Pakistan and Europe. Nowadays, MBA programs are common worldwide.

Neither high school nor undergraduate college is enough to get you to the top of the business food chain these days. Even people with Masters Degrees are working as receptionists for businesses and law firms. Believe me, I’ve seen it.

What can you do to set yourself apart from others? The answer is obvious – get into one of the best schools. Statistical evidence supports this. Getting into a top school makes a lot of difference in your personal career development.
