Always dreamt of going to an M7 for an MBA but backed out since I had no long term career goals that required an MBA. Most of my cohorts have been announcing their MBA acceptances and I can’t help but feel like I’ve given up on myself. Anyone ever dealt with this feeling?

SM at Deloitte. No MBA, no desire for one. You do you. If your career goals don't align to an MBA don't feel like you have to just cuz others are.

Thank you! @Deloitte 1 @D1 exactly why I’m not pursuing. Not looking for a career change so don’t see the value in being in debt and missing out on salary for two years.

I have an MBA from a top 20 program. Didn’t learn anything new from my classes. The value it gave me was in career switching and signaling a certain level of business acumen. You can also do that through experience.

You can still do it! It’s a great experience and I’m really glad I did it. Made a lot of good friends and had a nice salary boost.

What is the difference between Principal Design Strategist & Design Strategist? My current title is the latter and I’m interviewing for a Principal role. The title suggests it’s more senior and would appear to be a promotion on my resume but the jd sounds similar to what I’m already doing. I’m currently and IC, Principal is also IC. The only nuance I got from the recruiter is that there is no actual designing in this role. Is this a case of title inflation?
