I’m interested in Public Health and realized during my senior year of undergrad that I wanted to pursue obtaining a Master’s in Public Health. However, there are many concentrations in the field, and I was unsure of which path to take.
I decided to pursue my Master of Arts in Management degree at Wake Forest for 3 reasons:
1. Structure and Direction
The MA in Management program at Wake Forest provided the direction I needed both in regards to education and career development. The program also mimics a work environment, which will be beneficial in the future.
2. Better job opportunities
As a liberal arts double major (anthropology and human health), my job prospects were thin. Many of the job applications asked for candidates with Master’s degrees, data analysis experience or previous work experience; all things that I didn’t have. The MA program has drastically improved my position in the job market.
3. Gain business experience
This may seem obvious but business is everywhere. Having the skills to navigate in the business world is crucial, and this program provides an introduction to that.
