Divorced about 10 years ago and still cordial with the ex.

Guess who texted me today telling me he was having a hard time getting the form… ex wife still saving the day haha

Folks, help me out here. I have the ability to carry over 9 credit hours with Kelly School (IU) from a previous certificate. Current total comp is around $289K. I’m hoping to make VP in the next year, but an MBA seems to be almost a prerequisite. I can complete my Kelly EMBA for ~$45k, which I believe I can be reimbursed for. My question is; should I? Is it truly worth the time? Is Kelly going to be reputable enough to make it worthwhile? I don’t want to be in consulting, and I’m not currently.
