How does my Business background fit at the CIA?


If you’re like me, you
want to use your MBA degree for something meaningful —
something bigger than yourself. The CIA is the perfect
place to make this happen. Here, your talents
make it possible for us to safeguard the national
security of America through the collection
and production of critical foreign
intelligence for the President and senior policymakers. When I come to work each day,
I know that I am contributing to a mission greater
than myself. You might be wondering
where you could fit in at the CIA if
you have an MBA. Let me tell you about
the many positions that fit your background. You could be a Contracting
Officer, where you would learn and use innovative
business practices to streamline the acquisition
process and maximize resources for CIA’s outsourced needs. You could also be a
Finance Resource Officer, dedicated to providing the full
range of financial services, administrative support and
resource management to the CIA. Another exciting position
is the Resource Analyst, where you would be
providing input to strategic programs
while assisting with data-driven analyses
and documentation for budget projections. Or, if you have a passion for
world affairs, you could serve in the Directorate of
Operations, where you would help with the clandestine
collection and dissemination of intelligence from
human sources. This means you would be
directly involved with some of the most sensitive
work this nation performs. The Directorate of Operations
hires all backgrounds but with your insights into
how businesses operate, you could better bridge
private and public sectors for greater access
into various industries that can address critical
US intelligence gaps. Those with MBAs have successful
careers in the Directorate of Operations as Collection
Management Officers, Operations Officers or
Staff Operations Officers. No matter what professional
path you choose, a career in the CIA will
give you a unique role in keeping not only the United
States, but the world, safer. You have a lot of career
choices in the CIA. Now, the only question is:
