re: Spin-Off: BS in Engineering Paired with MBA - elleshoo9
Good advice, thanks. I guess I'm pretty limited in New Orleans when it comes to a PMBA with Tulane being the only good one in the area. Lynx, I saw a ranking earlier showing LSu MBA slightly higher than Tulane. Thoughts? ...

Being in engineering, how important would you say it is to network directly with classmates in a traditional MBA setting as opposed to networking with engineering professionals while pursuing an online MBA from a solid name program?...

Well it wouldn't be 100% free. Depending on the program, I'd probably have to pay 33-50% of the cost. ...

[quote]I don't really see the point of the thread then... If it's free, and you just want the certificate, then go do it??[/quote] The point of the thread was asking other engineers how obtaining an MBA affected their careers. Read the OP. The thread has since been hijacked to talked about how on...

[quote]No offense meant to the OP, but he is really missing the boat on the reason for getting a MBA. I agree with all that you posted above.[/quote] Taking this new job and staying in New Orleans, there aren't many quality local options for a part time MBA. LSUTOM07, did your UGA PMBA open d...

re: Spin-Off: BS in Engineering Paired with MBA - elleshoo9
I've looked at Tulane and it would be way more money out of pocket for me. I will only get $7500 in reimbursement per year, and the nice thing about an online program is I can string it out and make the most of the reimbursement. ...

re: Spin-Off: BS in Engineering Paired with MBA - elleshoo9
Well the reason I'm considering getting one is the $7500 per year reimbursement from my new employer. I'm not doing a full time MBA because that would require quitting work for a couple years and pay for it on my own. It's not ticking a box for me, it's learning whatever an MBA teaches you. I un...

So I'm trying to exchange some of my Vanguard Target Retirement 2055 for VTI and VYM, but these two aren't available to choose from among other vanguard mutual funds. Any idea why not? VTSMX is available. Is that pretty much the same? It says I need to open a brokerage account to buy VTI....
