Employment of strategy managers is expected to grow faster than average, as firms strive towards greater efficiency. Strategy managers study a client firm’s business model and provide expert advice on how to become more profitable. Many industries hire strategy managers, from biotechnology labs to financial services firms to the government. Some senior consultants specialize in one industry, while others specialize in one kind of advice such as operational efficiency or inclusive hiring. A bachelor’s degree is required for entry-level positions, but a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) is typically preferred and required to advance within the profession.
