I am right now in a dilemma whether to apply for a 2-year MBA or complete an intermediate MS and then go for 1 year MBA after 4-5 years ( in my early 30s). I am from India , and right now with the difficult times in getting H1b visa , I feel it is wise to work in US for 3-4 years ( I would start working early next year on H1b from my current orgn.), and then use the 1 year MBA for career advancement. It is also difficult nowadays to get financial aids ( either scholarships/loans). I also thought of doing an intermediate masters to satisfy the business prerequisites for 1 year MBA , and also get a graduate degree in parallel.
So my question is , is it really worth spending $ for masters and then $$ for 1 year MBA , rather than spending $$$ for a 2 year MBA now ? I do not want to change industry or function , just want to go into general mang positions . Does two graduate degrees (MS , 1 year MBA) have more effect in career than 2 year MBA ? Also , as I would be working in Boston , do you feel that earning a part-time MS from "Boston Univ Metropolitan School" or ALM from "harvard Extension School" would have any effect from employment and graduate school admission point of view. In the meantime , I can also increase my GMAT score and profile.
