A friend of mine is going to school in an "MBA for professionals" program. I’m not sure if it’s public knowledge or not, so no identifying links here. Anyway, in an e-mail today, he mentioned that he has class tomorrow, and that got me thinking. Every few months for most of the past decade the thought crosses my mind that I should look into doing the same thing.
So far I haven’t done anything about it for a number of reasons, mostly falling into either the money category or the time category, some into both. But I’m still interested in doing it someday — at least I haven’t ruled it out.
So, here’s the question. Is it worth it?
If you’ve done it, are doing it, are thinking about it, or decided against it, I’d be interested to hear why. Also, if you are a person that does hiring, I’d like to hear what you think. Would you take an MBA over experience? Or is experience king? Realistically, it will be a year or two before I’m ready to go for it. So that gives me plenty of time to get tips from all sorts of people.
If you have any thoughts, you can leave a comment or contact me.
