Wifi hotspot in case internet drops at a bad time, I like having 2 screens instead of one, good noise cancel headphones with mic for calls, good lighting, and alternative stuff to do in case of a boring/irrelevant conf call

I specially like those comfort cozy socks too . Makes a ton of difference . Recommend bamboo socks!

Hey everyone,

I have a colleague who is 8 years in the financial services industry. Works on the retail sales side (350k-400k TC). Turning 33 this year. Wants to get an MBA or possibly EMBA so he can leave sales and possibly go more into finance on the institutional side, which imo requires at least a T15 degree. Specifically in the Northeast unless it is online.

But he wants to do it in the shortest amount of time without leaving his current job.

Any ideas on what to check out? Thank you!
