I'll keep this short. I had originally planned to enter into an MSF program but I've recently been considering an MBA program instead. Both programs are at the same school, and assume that I have an equal chance of getting into both programs. The MBA program work experience requirement at this school is only 4 years and by the matriculation date I will just over 4 years of work experience under my belt.
As far as what I want to do....I've always wanted to get into the financial world. My initial attraction to the program, however, was the minimal work experience needed rather than my interest in an in-depth finance education. The MBA program offers a concentration in Information Technology (which I have experience in) and I know that the demand for IT management jobs is supposed to steadily increase over the next decade.
As a 25 year old, which is more marketable in this economy? Does the MSF metaphorically "cap" you in climbing the corporate ladder? If so, would you suggest the MSF and returning for the MBA if I wanted to move into management? Would the MBA/IT niche give me a hand-up on the MSF degree?
Thanks for any input guys, I really appreciate it.
"The public Treasury, which should only exist as a conduit conveying the people's tribute to its legitimate objects of expenditure, becomes a hoarding place for money needlessly withdrawn from trade and the people's use, thus crippling our national energies, suspending our country's development, preventing investment in productive enterprise, threatening financial disturbance, and inviting schemes of public plunder."
