I'm at a big four consulting firm. I went to a top 20 undergrad, ok grades (adjusting to civilian life and disabilities was a factor), humanities major. Cybersecurity, aviation background. I am nowhere near prepared for an MBA program, but I could run circles around our Ivy interns this summer. Then Duke EMBA reached out to me and got the gears turning. I never thought I'd have a near perfect ASVAB and end up in the military. I never thought I'd be smart enough to graduate from my undergrad university. I never thought I'd try for an MBA. Not to go all female, but frankly, no one put any of those ideas in my head growing up. It was all literature and fashion.
Now that the ideas are there, and I accomplished two of the three, I crazily want an MBA, from an M7. I'm intimidated by the debt, but I'm more afraid of complacency or not being challenged. I have 6 months left of GI Bill. If anyone has any guidance, prep programs or scholarship suggestions, please message me. I don't know if an EMBA is worth the debt. I'm 30, I'm not sure if that's too old for a traditional program. Cornell popped up with a one-year tech MBA.
Would love insight on that as well.
