Currently I'm attending Fordham University doing my MBA there on a part time basis. Right now I'm only taking two classes because I thought it was going to be harder than it is, it might just be because they're the beginner classes for the MBA and no really in depth and because I'm working full time.
As I've said in other posts, my fiance wants to move back to Michigan ASAP, but I want to at least finish my MBA here. If I stay part time, I'll finish in 3-4 years, but if I switch to full time, I'll be able to finish in 2 years (including the current semester).
If I switch to full time I won't be able to work full time anymore and will have to cut back to part time work or no work at all. With this I would have to take out additional student loans to cover my finances throughout the year, so ~25k a year in extra loans. I'm currently paying for all of my tuition and books through students as well.
My current job is an hourly job with no benefits so it's not like I would be losing health insurance benefits or anything like that, just my pay. It is in the finance industry so it is a small bonus to my resume but not critical as it is trading, and that's not what I want to do in the end, but if I can switch to full time, I can do a part time unpaid internship for the resume bump.
I've been in talks with some firms in Michigan about employment when I move back, but they mostly hire need based and the entry level employee isn't really needed so I'd want to get as much experience as I can while I'm in NYC.
So, fellow monkeys, what would you do in my situation?
