Does it make sense to to go for an MBA while already having a MSc?
I took a sell-side4 years ago under a top analyst in London. Had just come right out of a top master program (which has precipitously been downgraded in terms of ranking). Plus done with CFA, CPA (worked for a big 4 a year prior to the MSc), and CAIA. Recently I've got R1 admission results from two top MBAs (one in the UK - another in the US)
I'm trying to get into a LO AM, and did actually network my way into an associate position. Problem of course is that the pay is at a discount relative to what I'm paid on the sell-side; even worse, I have to get a discectomy done and need a long rest
I've seen a slate of sell-siders from very specific banks go for LO after MBA as analysts, but that's purely from networking though, might be exceptional cases. I'm inclined to quit, take the MBA and then network again into a LO, and undergo surgery before I'm crippled.
What I'm depressed about is that I'm 28, not even close to settling down yet. I've already spent 5 years studying, so 2 extra years kinda look like a waste of time. Though I can negate latter by thinking about the work I can do after the MBA
What do you think?
