Answer:

Absolutely. If you have a bachelor's degree in social work you may become a social worker who will help people solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives, including to develop or improve programs, services, policies, and social conditions. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), overall employment of social workers is projected to grow 13 percent from 2019 to 2029, leading to 90,700 new jobs and a median pay of $50,470 in May 2019.

You will need to have at least three years of work experience before you can start your Master of Business Administration (MBA), especially with a concentration in nonprofit management. You may then advance to become a social and community service manager or a fundraising manager. According to the BLS, the median annual wage for social and community service managers was $67,150 in May 2019, while the median annual wage for public relations and fundraising managers was $116,180 in May 2019.
