The Correct Way to List a Business Degree on a Resume


Your resume is an important document in your professional career. It should contain pertinent, relevant information about you and your professional field-related accomplishments. Simple mistakes, such as the improperly listing a degree you have earned, can make you look disorganized, uncaring and unattractive to potential employers. When creating your resume, there are several ways to list your business degree correctly.

  • Insert an “Education” section in a prominent location on your resume if you haven’t already. List your academic degrees with the most recent degree at the top (reverse chronological order). This may likely be your business degree.

  • List your business degree. You can use the acronym, but always include the year of completion. For example, you could write, “M.B.A., May 2010” or “Master of Business Administration, May 2010.”

  • List your business degree with the specific concentration you studied. If you are planning to go into a specific part of the business field, it is recommended that you include this information. If desired, you can also include the name of the institution you completed your degree on a line right below.
    “M.B.A., Marketing Concentration, May 2010
    University of Wisconsin, Whitewater” or
    “Master of Business Administration, May 2010
    Concentration: Marketing
    University of Wisconsin, Whitewater”
