Are MBAs still worth it?

#college #finance #business #economic

Thank you comment icon Kelvin: Absolutely. Any additional education after high school is well worth it. I have a college degree. I do not have an MBA, but I wish that I did. Go for it - you won't regret it. Good Luck. Mary Ellen Mary Ellen Callaghan

Hi Kelvin,

MBAs are completely worth it depending on your values and goals. If you want to work in finance, business and/or economics, having an MBA can open up many doors for you. For one, it can help you to sharpen the skills and knowledge needed to flourish in those fields. Additionally, it can help you gain connections before you enter the workforce. Your classmates and your professors can be some of the best connections to help you once you're in the field. In short, yes, an MBA can be worth it.

James’s Answer

An MBA is an investment in yourself. Several of my colleagues/friends have received an MBA for a few reasons:

1) To further develop their skillset and prepare them for the next step in their professional career (Sr. Leadership Roles such as VP or C-suite level)

2) To make a career pivot and switch fields. For example, some of my colleagues have moved from technology consulting to a career in 'big tech' working for Amazon, Google, etc.

There's a plethora of resources online if you're deciding on an MBA. Poets and Quants and MBA admissions websites are great resources that talk in depth about 'why mba'.

Mark’s Answer

Education is always worth it. However, you got to consider what you want to. if you are a project manager or run projects, now-a-days the PMP certification and PMI Institute holds as much credit as MBA. However, if you are trying to do marketing, or product analysis, MBA is a more suitable solution.
