Why More Education Means More Money

As the requirements on admins increase, the more skilled an admin is, the higher the salary the admin will be able to demand. More education means more skills as well as a greater knowledge base from classes taken while earning the degree. While earning an MBA, for example, an admin might take classes in management or organizational behavior that will give an on-the-job admin the skills and authority to tackle new challenges that an admin without that degree would not be able to. In addition, MBA students often gain hands on experience while earning their degree that will make them an even stronger asset.
