Around 84 percent of the nation’s top 50 arts organizations have a Harvard Business School (HBS) alumnus board member. Michael Skelly (HBS MBA 1991) is a green-energy entrepreneur and Philipp Saumweber (MBA 2006) started Sundrop Farms to bring sustainable horticulture to the arid world. Sunil B. Mittal (OPM 1999), Founder and Chairman of Bharti Enterprises, is a 2016 recipient of an HBS Alumni Achievement Award and he builds schools to improve the lives of thousands of children and families.

With a workforce of nearly 22 million people working at the state, local, and federal levels, government employs more people than any other organization in the country—and it’s just getting bigger. In 1989, nearly 18 million workers were employed in government. This means that every decade, for nearly three decades, it added well over 1.2 million new employees. Earnings are impressive as well, especially at the higher levels.

Getting into a top business school has never been easy. In fact, many top business schools in the U.S. accept less than 20% of applicants into their business programs, with the best of the best accepting an average of 15.6% (2015). The acceptance rates are even lower for the world’s most elite business schools such as Stanford Graduate School of Business (Stanford GSB) and Harvard Business School (HBS).

Ah, Silicon Valley—the place where your wildest tech dreams can come true. In 2015 alone, dozens of start-ups launched in Silicon Valley and the majority of venture-backed tech startups are headquartered here or have an office here. And let’s not forget that the world’s largest tech and media companies are located in the Valley including Apple, Cisco, Google, HP, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle, Yahoo! and Facebook, to name a few.

In early 2016, Apple and Samsung supplier Foxconn replaced 60,000 employees with robots.  China's Everwin Precision Technology is in the process of replacing 90 percent of its factory workforce with automatons, and thanks to the da Vinci surgical system, surgeons can now “perform” surgery without ever touching the patient’s body. Futurologists predict that robots “will almost certainly operate on patients independently and replace human surgeons one day.” 

Distance education is nothing new. In fact, the University of Chicago introduced the nation’s first major correspondence program way back in the late 1800s. What is new, however, is the cutting-edge technology used to deliver today’s online education programs, which has led to explosive growth in the world of distance education.

In 2015, the expected median starting salary for MBA graduates in the U.S. was $100,000. Add a specialization and salaries are likely to be even higher. Take technology management, for instance. Professionals in this field averaged $131,600 (or $63.27 per hour) in 2015, and the highest 10 percent averaged an impressive $187,200. Most employers require technology managers to have a graduate degree, with the most common degree being, you guessed it—an MBA. 

From high school football to college football to the NFL. Sounds like a natural progression for an exceptional (or super star) athlete right? From the NFL to business school? Not so much. But this is exactly what some current and former football players say will help them get to the next level—in business that is, because financial security after an alarmingly short football career is never guaranteed.

The information technology (IT) industry is booming, with an estimated 3.9 million Americans working in the field today. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects the industry to add nearly 500,000 new IT professionals by 2024, bringing the talent pool total to more than 4.4 million. While demand for qualified technology professionals is high in just about every area of the computer and information technology industry, computer and information systems management is expected to experience even greater growth for the 2014-2024 decade. 

Many of today’s business schools offer a Brazilian residency as part of their MBA or Executive MBA program.
