Students who have received an undergraduate degree in liberal arts and wish to advance in a particular field of study often go on to study in an MA, or Master of Arts, program. This degree is usually awarded after one to two years of study.
What is an MA in Business English? This advanced degree can help graduates improve their ability to communicate in the English language and be attentive to the nuances of business communication specifically. Course study may include learning how to communicate effectively within organizations at the various levels, such as within a team or to staff members and upper management; how to research effectively and communicate the results of that research; and how to analyze and think critically to present information in a confident and appropriate manner.
The ability to analyze information and communicate effectively can help graduates improve both their personal and professional expression. The English-language focus of the degree can help students who are from non-English speaking countries work with European and North American businesses, enhancing language skills.
The cost of achieving an MA or Master of Arts can vary greatly, depending on where one chooses to study. In addition to per-unit costs for classes, there may be additional fees, such as for registration and examinations, that should be taken into consideration.
Graduates with an MA in Business English may find work in public relations or corporate communications as researchers, publicists, writers or editors. Other career options can include copywriter at an advertising agency or as a reporter or correspondent covering business-related stories of interest for a newspaper or television station. With the appropriate experience or specialized courses, a career as a marketing communications manager or director may also be a possibility.
