"As employers look for more highly qualified business professionals and managers, the demand for higher education is increasing. Students are therefore looking for the best undergraduate and graduate degrees in the areas of business and management, as well as creative ways to supplement the cost of their education," states Tammie Cagle, editor at Top Management Degrees. The number of students attending colleges in the US this year is expected to reach almost 21 million, as reported by NCES, and tuition costs are increasing even as this demographic expands. Cagle explains that from 2000 to 2014 alone, the average yearly tuition cost for public schools rose from $7,586 to $16,188. This drastic increase has also been seen in private tuition costs, which rose from $21,934 to $41,970 per year. But in spite of high costs, the sense of obligation aspiring professionals feel to pursue a degree has only grown stronger. Students are now responsible to harness multiple sources of financial support-- whether from personal and familial resources, or government loans and scholarships.
There are many opportunities available for prospective students. Some students cast a wide net by applying to many different scholarships, but one way to increase the chances of being chosen for awards is to find niche scholarships within a narrow pool. Students interested in business and management have a choice of scholarships specifically directed at this area of study. This top twenty list of scholarships can help potential business and management students find more opportunities for financial support and increase their chances of a higher ROI upon earning their degree.
