I’m thinking of pursuing an MBA soon - but as crazy as this sounds, I’m worried that being an MBA would make me more intimidating to men. Ladies out there feel me on this? (Cont’d)

I’m not ashamed to admit that 75% of the reason I’m going to get an MBA is with the hopes of getting an MRS out of it too

Not to brag, but just crossed 200k annual comp with my raise and bonus this year. Still living in NYC, paying 2k a month in MBA loans, and 1k to support patents, but now feel a little more secure. 😀

Firm will sponsor my MBA, but is it worth going? Two years of lost earnings and no additional gain in promotion trajectory. I know an MBA can be a good two year vacation, but I’m not sure if there’s much more value besides that. 🐠 who did / didn’t take the MBA sponsorship, what was your rationale?

(24M) Help on finding a career path ? I graduated from Boston University with a degree in comm w/ a concentration in advertising. Ive been in the industry for almost a year as a media planner, and have generally enjoyed it. My biggest issue though is the money. I didn’t go into the field expecting to get rich, but it would be nice to not live in poverty...Im considering going back to school to get an MBA in marketing as I feel this will complement my work experience and UG degree.

I know imposter syndrome has been discussed a lot here and it’s something I’m working through. A girl in my MBA class told me “Of course you’re good at giving presentations-you’re pretty and blonde.”

Johnson (Full ride) or Stern (no $) or Darden (no $)? Post MBA goal is consulting in NYC (preferably MBB but Tier 2 is fine). Would be taking 130K loan for Stern & Darden. The latter 2 schools seem to have better prestige and recruiting opps but unsure if it’s worth the 130K in the long run.

Would be interested in hearing about people’s experiences with resume development for mba apps. Do you break down your experience by project/client? How do you represent what you do in consulting when projects and responsibilities and differ wildly from client to client? How have you represented internal initiative work on your resume?
