A majority of those who are currently studying for, or actively pursuing, careers in finance and accounting remain open to the idea of a career change in which they undertake a more general business role.

The career change is, of course, a popular reason for pursuing an MBA and many of those who arrive at the qualification from a background in finance will be open to the idea of exploring new career horizons at the very least.

Among those responding to the QS Applicant Survey 2015, 94% said they would be interested in opportunities in industries outside of the one in which they currently work. Interestingly, among respondents with backgrounds in finance, this proportion dropped to 82% – making it the industry in which the greatest number of applicants were keen to stay put. Even so, this number still represents a clear majority.

Regardless of the industry in which a candidate currently works, one’s desire for a career change might well be influenced by the type of organization they currently work for.
