MBA or No?
If you're debating on whether or not to go back to school for your MBA, then you're going to need to evaluate your reasons for wanting to return for a higher degree. The following questions from MBAAdvice were designed to help students evaluate their reasons for pursuing an MBA:
- Does getting an MBA allow you to pursue a career about which you are passionate?
- Does getting an MBA allow you to do something at which you can achieve excellence? Does it allow you to do something at which you are naturally talented?
- If you answered yes to the above two questions, does getting an MBA allow you to pursue a career that can financially support your lifestyle?
Students should remember that earning an MBA degree can offer such benefits as an increased salary, increased career options, refined business skills, and networking opportunities. On the flip side, some business professionals argue that education is not a substitute for experience and that MBA classrooms focus more on the analytical side of problem solving than the application of problem solving.
