To those heading for your MBAs/ considering an MBA in the future-

1) Do you think getting an MBA is worth the opportunity cost?
2) What kind of field/ industry/ role do you want to go into post MBA? How helpful do you think your MBA will be to help you get there?
3) If your employer offers to pay in full for a PT MBA, would you have done that instead of pursuing a FT MBA?

Most MBA aspirants want to earn an MBA degree because:

1. They want to earn more money

2. They hate their current job

However, if these are the only two reasons you wish to do an MBA, you have a very limited and short-term perspective; because after a point, neither of these aspects will mean much to you.

For example, if you are a senior manager at a reputed IT company, and your job involves client interaction, business development, international travel, etc., you need not do an MBA at all as you will already be earning well and will have an envious job profile, too.

However, if you want to enhance your knowledge and perspective, or want a life-changing experience, you may still consider doing an MBA.

Leave it to this guy to say “envious” job profile.... Not a solid, respectable, or impressive title. But envious, which immediately implies potential conflict. Got to love South Asia.

Welcome back Aerfally! Good to see you back on GMAT Club after many years. If you have a minute, would love to hear about your Booth Experience. I am sure many people in the Booth Forum would appreciate it (e.g. Posting in retrospect thread and what you feel MBA was or was not).

Thank you!
