Not happy with you’re doing right now? To some extent, your resume limits your options to where you have education and experience. If you are interested in making a career change, one way to do it is to go to business school. You can get in with any bachelor’s degree and business schools actually like to admit people with a wide diversity of backgrounds. Business school is difficult to get funding for, but it typically requires two years of experience to get in and by then you have some years of savings also. Also, business school grads command high salaries that often make up for the up front investment.
Business school will keep you very busy. There are a high volume of assignments on a wide diversity of topics. Business school essentially provides a generalist degree. It exposes you to all aspects of business to prepare you for general management positions. Of course you can specialize more in your second year if you have a specific area that you are interested in. Although all businesses will typically value MBAs for high level positions, the value of an MBA will vary for other positions by field. Finance careers will certainly benefit immediately, while engineering careers may not benefit much for many years.
Business school students are certainly highly motivated and highly ambitious, so you will be going to school with interesting people with many different stories about their experience in the real world. There are also executive MBAs for people who are advancing into senior levels of management and need the extra training. Overall, an MBA will open many new doors that would not otherwise be open in your current field and in other fields. It is like an hourglass. People come in with a wide variety of backgrounds, get trained in the same material, and then go out into a wide variety of areas.
