The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter in our Management & Careers bureau to cover the M.B.A. The masters of business administration has long been the gold standard in business education, but applications to traditional programs in the U.S. have dropped in recent years.
You will be able to unearth fresh insight into corporate recruiting and the M.B.A.'s value proposition for work from Wall Street to Silicon Valley, what's changing in business schools' curriculum, which universities are moving up and down in the rankings, the rise of M.B.A. programs outside the U.S. and debates over how a strong economy, rising education costs, cultural trends and the proliferation of online degrees is shifting the market for business education.
You will be part of a team that writes on a wide range of issues, from the most promising careers of the future to what’s happening now in cubicle culture. The person who joins this team will report on a host of topics that impact people’s careers, from how to lobby for the job you want to how to balance life and work.
The management team produces longer lead-time enterprise stories and also serves as a rapid response team that can broaden breaking news, from the corporate response to gun violence to the rise of employee activism in the workplace. You should be capable of, and game to, pivot between both styles of reporting and writing.
We are looking for candidates enthusiastic about multiple forms of storytelling, from text to graphics to audio and video. We want someone with great ideas and a track record of breaking news and conceptualizing and delivering strong features.
This job reports to the Management & Careers bureau chief and is based in New York.
