On My Resume, Should I Spell Out the Type of Degree I'm Pursuing?
When completing the education section of your resume, it is better to write out the degree rather than using the common acronym. This point applies whether you have the degree or anticipate obtaining the degree in the future.
If you are working toward a master of Business Administration degree, the first line of this listing should show "Master of Business Administration, expected 2022." One reason to use the full degree type is you don't want to wrongly assume all hiring managers are familiar with the "MBA" abbreviation. The second line typically indicates the school, as in "University of Texas, Austin, Texas."
