MBA in marketing or in International Business [#permalink] New post 16 Aug 2011, 05:49
Dear all,
I intend to apply for MBA in US in the Fall 2012. I'm working as staff of alliances and international affairs of Korean Air (3 years experience). I'm in charge of cooperation between Korean Air and other airlines partners (mainly negotiate and discuss to set up code-share cooperation with other airlines. For example, we have cooperation with Delta Airlines so that we can put our Airline's code on flights which operated by Delta airlines). Via code-sharing with other partners, our airlines can give more chances for customers to flight to the destinations which we don't truly operate.
I would like to further develop in the field I am currently working and hope that MBA can help.
However, I'm so confused that with the experiences I mentioned above, I should study MBA in marketing ('cause my work needs skill of market research, find suitable partners, create suitable products via code-sharing etc.) or study MBA in international business ('cause I work in international environment, contact and cooperate with other airlines around the world).
Please give me advice!

Hi Julie146,

This decision is very personal, so unfortunately there isn't a "right" answer we can give you. What will help you most in your decision is first determining what your goals are post-graduation. Do you have a particular position and/or company you would like to work for? If, for example, there is a particular company you would like to join, then contact the company to see which business schools they recruit from.

MBA programs can provide so much for students, but you will have a much richer experience if you consider your goals post-graduation. Remember that business school is not the end goal, but rather a stepping stone for you to have the career you always wanted.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
