Should I Go to BSchool? [#permalink]

Hey gang, we were doing an interview on grad school and business school--thought Id share a quick Q&A...

How does one decide if bschool is right for them? What kind of questions should they be asking?

This is the oldest question in the book--and the answer is...it depends! In our opinion, there are two ways to approach this question. The first is with regard to job prospects. One can do a simple calculation--would I get better work, more interesting work, make more money--whatever the metrics are, with this degree. If the degree puts you in a firmly, tangibly BETTER position, then GO TO SCHOOL. You are currently at Point A. You want to get to Point C. Will a masters degree get you to point B? Maybe point B+? If yes, then GO TO SCHOOL.

Now. There is one other way to look at it. This is what our clients call our "touchy-feely" side. Namely, life is a journey. There is an instance where you may NOT benefit a great deal, from a professional perspective, from bschool. But it still may be worth your time. Why? Because you will meet new people, have new experiences, perhaps live in a new city--all these can be powerful incentives to go to school. Suck the marrow out of life, and take yourself to NEW experiences and settings along the way.

If neither of these two scenarios appeals to you--either the job-oriented, or the "touchy-feely," then bschool likely isnt for you.
