Presented by\nMost people think the idea of having a high-paying, respectable job that you love can be stashed away with other unattainable dreams, like owning a home in your 20s.\nBut it doesn't have to be that way. If you lay the foundations properly now by getting the highest, most relevant qualifications, you'll quickly find that getting your dream job is actually within reach!\nWhether you're a professional seeking to return to school and earn an MBA to advance in your career, enjoy a salary boost, or even change industries altogether, you probably already know that having an MBA pays off in the long run. An MBA doesn't just get your foot in any old door; it sends you on the fast track to reaping the benefits of a greater salary and building your dream life.\nQS\nIf you want to stand out from a pool of job candidates with the same qualifications as you, having an MBA will give you a serious edge on the competition. There is clear and proven ROI in pursuing an MBA - according to PayScale, the average salary for all MBA grads in the United States is an average of $87,000 with the possibility of reaching over $230,000 per year (!). It gives you the tools to start your own business, become a respected leader, and move up the career ladder.\nToday’s job market demands a higher degree of specialization and skills, and that means - for a lot of jobs - an undergrad degree just doesn't cut it anymore.\nIf upgrading your degree to an MBA is something you're seriously considering - or even something you've never thought of before - there's one Texas event that can give you all of the MBA-related information you'll ever need to make a sound decision.\nThe World MBA Tour, put on by QS, a company specializing in linking students with leading business schools, will be coming to Houston, Austin, and Dallas in October.\nQS\nIn Houston, the event will take place on October 19 at the Royal Sonesta Houston from 1:15 PM - 6:00 PM.

Because the online MBA can be worked around professional and personal commitments, it’s not surprising that many candidates are older than the average full-time MBA student, and generally have more years of work experience under their belts. - In this year’s QS Distance Online MBA Rankings – ranking the 50 best distance online MBA options globally – the average work experience for all programs was 10 years. This is significantly more than most students on full-time MBA programs, who’ve banked around three to five years of work experience. - However, the following nine distance learning programs boast students with much more work experience than the average. - Want to read the full story?
