To get an MBA or not?
I've been thinking about getting an MBA and was wondering a few things. I'm hoping some of you here can help me gather some of my decision-making data.
- As someone with an Engineering degree already, what avenues do you think I can take after having acquired an MBA?
My degree was a balance of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I possess some fairly extensive experience as a Systems/Network Administrator and an Application Developer.
I would like to continue working in an analytical context. What focus should I take knowing this and taking my background into account?
Do you think I would have to go back and learn a large amount of business related material prior to enrolling?
If you have an MBA, was the course-load something you found interesting and do you think you've truly helped your career by obtaining it?
Do you know of any reading material that I can peruse prior to making my decision or enrolling that will help me in the process?
I currently work as a Systems Administrator for the University I will most likely be attending. I doubt that I will be open to becoming a full-time student again as I enjoy my steady pay-check. I am planning on doing this on a part-time basis at night.
What are your thoughts surrounding this? Not a good idea? Worth my time?
Thanks for any response this post elicits!
