I work in the animation industry.I have been working in one of the top animation studios in Los Angeles for the last 6+ years as a Technical Artist.
I am highly interested in pursuing a part-time mba program related to entertainment and media management or something akin that would land me a management job in media/entertainment or the gaming industry.
However, there would be no use or application of my mba degree in my current job.I would have make a career switch(which I am ready to) to make the most out of my management degree.Also, my current employer will not sponsor any part of my degree expenses.All the expenses will be out of my pocket.
My undergrad was in Computer science and I have a masters in Fine Arts.
Do you guys think that my current work experience in the animation industry which is no way related to management would be a deterring factor in getting into a good business school and finding a good job after the completion of my part-time/fully employed MBA program ? since most of the people I have heard of pursue their fully employed MBA degree to advance in their current careers as opposed to make a career switch.
What would be some other MBA streams that might be suitable for me and help me utilize my work experience in the animation industry to my advantage as opposed to starting from a blank slate.
Your input is highly appreciated.
