Specialty programs in business are very career specific, for instance:

  • Master of Computational Finance.
  • Master of Industrial Administration.
  • Master of Health Care/Hospital Administration.
  • Master of Public Accountancy (if you are interested in becoming a Certified Public Accountant, you can choose this option or an MBA with an accountancy concentration).

Specialty programs do not offer the general management background that an MBA does; however, they provide extensive training in a specific field.

Some fields may be nearly impossible to enter without specialized training. Research your chosen industry to determine whether a specialty program may be a better option for you than a generalist MBA degree.
