Profession-Ready: What it Means, Why You Should Care

In today’s job market, employers are placing a strong emphasis on hiring people with critical business skills who can bring value to the organization immediately, who can think and act strategically from day one, and who can handle situations as if they’ve been there for yearpeople who are unquestionably profession-ready.

Law schools in particular have been familiar with a similar term, practice-ready, for some time now. More and more, they’re creating real world situations and on-campus clinics where students can practice their craft before graduation; that way, law firms can feel more confident than ever recruiting their graduates. What does this have to do with you? Business schools are now doing the same, but not all of them. As someone who has decided to pursue a graduate degree, your next move should be to determine which program will best prepare you for your intended profession. You need to know that come graduation, you’ll be that MBA candidate that an employer simply can’t turn down.
