Something I have been considering for the last few months has been whether or not I should take the time to earn a master’s degree in business administration. It would be a pretty big undertaking, but it is the type of thing that can make you significantly more marketable whenever you are going for a new job opportunity.
It’s not just the prospects of being more employable that I think makes getting an MBA something that might be worth doing, but it also appears to be a great opportunity to network with other people who are interested in progressing their careers to the next level.
Speaking of the next level, it is widely accepted that having an MBA will increase your income earning potential, and is an obvious choice for me to progress should I wish to earn more money from full time employment in the future.
It’s not all good news though, getting an MBA is a large time commitment, and it also costs a lot of money. Considering I have only limited time available at the moment, I have to seriously consider if proceeding down the path of another degree is worth the amount of effort I would have to put in.
Yes it would be great to increase my skills and to be more employable, but I’m not yet convinced that I want to spend that much more time studying, particularly when I am running so many online businesses that are starting to yield some good results.
I do love learning new things and I’m sure having an MBA would assist me in taking my online business to the next level in some way, so it’s something i’ll have to seriously consider, particularly considering how challenging the employment market is at the moment.
Do you have an MBA? Do you think it was worth your time?
