My company has told me I can move to our Austin office and pursue mine at UT fully paid for on their dime. I am seriously considering doing it


Good move.

Because it's absolutely true. Master's degrees are increasingly becoming the new minimum.

You should have gotten some work experience and pursued an MBA from a different program.

Read my sig line.

You never know what the future holds. If you are nose to nose with another candidate seeking a job, and you have the MBA while the other person has a Bachelor's.....

re: Thinking of getting my MBA
Back in the day, you needed work experience and that's why a lot of these posters are saying that it would be a waste of time to get it. NOT TRUE. This is the OT and half the posters saying that probably don't even have a bachelors. Go get the MBA, it will give you way more opportunities than a bachelors. What is your undergrad major? The majority of people accepted to B school don't major in Business.

Do it. I am old and did the MBA long ago. It was worth it for me. From Money Talk board: LINK

It certainly doesn't hurt. I went right in after undergrad like everyone says not to do. Don't regret it though and it opened more doors later down the road.

I'm in an MBA program now and it does open doors. You should have some work experience first though so you can show you are more than just a degree earner.

I don't care what anyone else on here tells you...having your MBA is always a good thing.



having any form of education or any degree is better than having nothing .. anyone that calls any type of bachelor's degree or post graduate degree worthless or a "bad thing" cracks me up ..

I hate when people broadly throw this statement around without even knowing what particular field a person is in

If you decide against the MBA at least take an introduction to economics, accounting and finance.


Adding to that, those classes are available for free online from big name schools.
