Are you 35-ish years old? If so Exec MBA might be better for you...I haven't seen many full-time programs accepting students that old.

Would want to try for part time / weekend programs

Looking at an offer from a Series E startup and trying to figure out if this is worth it. I’m at 2 years post-MBA at a Big 4 (current TC right around 200k).

I see a lot of TC improvements, but wondering if those folks see a base jump too? Thanks!
