Ad Hoc MBAHey guys, I currently run a business in the oil and gas industry. It's going very well so far, but I feel like I could use some formal business coursework.

I constantly hear that finance is becoming more quantitative everyday, so are the non-technical positions becoming more technical? Will all... 1 5 years 11 months
