S&T Associate using part-time MBA to break in
Hope you are all doing well. Could use some advice from the group here.
For some context - I am an associate in adesk and have been in a role for 3 years now. While working full time, I also just recently started pursuing part-time MBA. The program should take ~2.5 yrs or so. I want to use this part-time MBA to;
1.) Change job locations - move away from NYC to somewhere with LCOL / better place to start a family / more room in apt / more outdoor/nature-y/ (less rats in subway) etc.
2.) Move to a more investment / research like(maybe even transition to portfolio manager?)
Do you guys think I am looking at this the right way? I understand for a career change a full-time MBA is better but the opportunity cost and potentially running into debt is not my thing.
Besides networking and trying to build connections, does anyone have any other advice? I want to use my part-time program as effective as I can. What are some of the skillsets that I should build during my mba to help break into an AM?
