Thank you for the replies. Real work experience is one of my strongest drawbacks and you are right I do have too much school under my belt. Goes on to show, too much learning is a bad thing
. Bachelors, Masters and now doctorate. I really do not want tread the age old path and end up doing a post-doctorate.
I have considered doing a part-time MBA while working, but if I understand correctly it does not allow you to network as a full time MBA, and networking is very important to land a good job. Also, I am not sure if a part-time MBA carries the same value as a full-time MBA. Another concern is that a part-time MBA may not be a good option for someone like me who is trying to switch into a radically different field. Any thoughts on these?
I have always been a good student and was hoping that if I take finance, economics and advance statistics classes, I can show them that I can adjust to a very different program. I was under the impression that PhD being very independent venture, as it requires planning, co-ordination, and collaboration among different individuals might be able to balance the scale. Do you think asking admissions office of B-schools directly will help, or are they too busy trying to sell their program?
