An increasing number of students have their sights set on furthering their careers in the business sector. Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that business has become the most popular master's degree subject, with a total of 191,571 individuals pursuing this credential during the 2011-2012 academic year.

Those who wish to pursue an advanced degree in business, but are concerned about the cost of graduate school, should know that there are scholarships available to them. Western Governors University in Utah is among the schools that offer students a chance to save money on their education.

In a press release, WGU announced the launch of a new Master's Degree in Business Scholarship, which can be applied to various online, business-related tracks, including MBA, Master of Science in Accounting, and Master of Science in Management and Leadership programs. Students who are eligible for the financial assistance can receive up to $2,000 toward their education. Multiple scholarships will be provided, and interested students have until October 31, 2014 to apply.

"WGU is committed to helping busy working adults achieve their dreams of a degree and career success," said Eric Goodman, the National Director of the university's College of Business, in a statement. "The university's competency-based programs empower graduates with the education and skills they need for the workforce, making them valuable employees."
