I m in a quandary as to what I can do with an MBA. I want to utilize my past knowledge and experience in Shipping and use that in my post MBA career. I want to work on the shore side of large Shipping companies as a Manager. However I am at loss when I try to decide on an MBA related to shipping. Most good colleges have no separate stream such as a MBA in Shipping or anything similar. If I go for a generic MBA I do not understand how i would convince the adcom I am ready for an MBA when I have difficulty convincing myself.
Can you guys suggest me something. Is logistics a logical choice for me(Since basically I have been transporting goods for a living until now)
