Academic Benefits

Here's why you should get a degree

There are many benefits to be derived from attaining a Bachelors degree. Research has shown that holders of a degree tend to earn more than those who don't have a degree. In fact a study done by the US Census Bureau showed that persons with a degree earns an average of 43 percent more than someone without one over the course of a lifetime. The Big Payoff: Educational Attainment and Synthetic Estimates of Work-Life Earnings.

In addition to the obvious financial benefits of earning a degree, there are also non monetary benefits to degree holders. Degree holders tend to hold higher quality jobs leading to a career rather than less fulfilling positions. The children of degree holders also benefit from their parents' academic achievement from greater parental involvement in their education. Overall graduates, tend to be a source of innovation and contribute to economic growth.

Will a Business Administration degree make me less employable than a Business Management Degree?

Job advertisements do not typically specify the award title but instead ask for a qualification in Business or Business related. Employers do not ask for a specific degree title. This Business Administration degree from UH has an international focus, and would enable the students to gain employment for any business from the small enterprise to the large multinational.

Except for specialist departments (such as accounting and finance) graduates are employed because of their employability skills, their understanding of Business issues and ability to learn (demonstrated by their completion of a University degree and classification). Therefore a Business Administration degree would not make you less employable than a Business Management Degree.
