David’s Answer

MBA and PhD are both post-graduate degrees you can pursue. But I'd just remind you that you can get a Masters (or even a PhD) in multiple fields. You can do a MS (Master of Sciences), a PhD, and/or concentrations in Data Analytics, Statistics, Applied Maths, Information Systems, Engineering, etc. They are all paths that lead to leadership positions in the business world.

But more importantly, a degree is a piece of paper. Sure, you learn things at the courses you have to take to earn the degree. But more important to learn while doing your coursework are skillsets (problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, leadership), building relationships (professors, peers, alumni, internships), and opening yourself up to new fields. I think these are more important than "having a degree" because a degree may open a door for you, but what you do once you enter that door will rely more on skillsets, relationships, and open mind than what you learned in class.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Richard’s Answer

The highest academic degree is a PhD , referred to as a doctorate degree. First you get a bachelor's degree (3 to 4 yrs) , then a master's degree (1.5 to 2 yrs) , then a doctorate degree (another 4 yrs on average typically). You need to look at several universities to see what doctorate degrees they offer within their respective schools of business. But you can get a doctorate in finance, economics, quantitative methods in business, management, management information systems, and many more subjects. Best of luck. Business is a great major and is a flexible major in that you can apply your knowledge in a variety of industries and with many employers. Or be self employed.
