Another Article On The MBA!

 My last post was on December 16, 2020 before all of the various holidays.  So welcome to 2021.

If you read the concerns some people have and do not have relative to the MBA degree in my last post, you may be wondering whether you need to be getting an MBA after all.  It all depends.  I am posting today an article from the Wall Street Journal dated January 4, 2021, authored by Patrick Thomas on "Do You Need To Get an MBA?"

As an apparently educated human being, you need to think about and analyze this situation.  Will the cost of the MBA give you a good ROI against future salary and promotion increases?  Do you have the time, etc. to spend on getting an MBA?   What is it your want to do with your MBA?  

The lists of questions could go on and on, but if you want to be successful, then analyze what is best for you and take the appropriate action.

As I said in the last blog post, I have my Master's.  Mine was completed 45 years ago.  Undoubtedly the curriculum has changed in huge ways since then.  In viewing my degree, I do not think it was that terribly helpful in my career as a consultant.  It was composed of a great deal of "ivory tower" stuff, so not that much was truly helpful in my real world.  But what it did give me is a stronger ability to reason and think, as well as in making presentations.  

Decide for yourself.
