7 Graduate Pathways in Administration Studies 2020

For international students with plans to earn a master’s degree, graduate pathways represent an opportunity to transition into the next stage of their education. These programs are designed for students to further improve their English and study skills prior to going for their master’s.

What is a graduate pathway in administration studies? This pathway program prepares students for a full master’s by introducing high-level concepts and practices in business management, expanding on the knowledge acquired in their bachelor’s level studies. At the same time, students also further refine their English and understanding of the local culture within the context of business administration. Participants may be able to specify a focus, such as organizational leadership or entrepreneurship, reflecting their future goals.

Students undertaking this graduate pathway can bolster their skills and experience in English communication and vital leadership skills, including decision-making, conflict mediation and risk analysis. The program focuses heavily on the context of administration, but these skills can be applied in most career settings.

As the graduate pathway in administration studies functions as the first one to two semesters of a master’s degree program, tuition costs should reflect this. Additional fees may apply depending on whether the program is campus-based or online, as well as necessary materials, and students should request further information.

Following a graduate pathway in administration and the master’s degree thereafter, students are equipped for higher-level positions within business management. Positions that directly oversee teams or departments, like sales managers and human resources managers, benefit greatly from this background, as do accountants, financial risk analysts and consultants that otherwise advise on necessary aspects of running a business.

Many universities in English-speaking nations that offer degrees in business feature this graduate pathway for international students. Distance learning may be possible depending on the program. For more information, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
