What does a Branch Manager do?

A Branch Manager can be found heading up one location of a company's chain of businesses. Branches are businesses that operate under the supervision of the central entity. Branch Managers are in charge of the operations and business growth of the branch assigned to them. An example of a Branch Manager would be someone who manages one location in a network for a large bank. They oversee the productivity of employees and influence positive business growth.

There is no specific education needed to hold a Branch Manager position. However, a majority of employers will require a bachelor's degree in Business, Finance or related field. Advanced degrees such as a Masters or Doctorate are preferred to hold senior or high profile positions. Being that a Branch Manager is responsible for driving business, sourcing, training and overseeing staff, having a well-rounded background in Business Management and Accounting is a big plus.
