I have 3-4 YoE - probably too little for an EMBA, and not keen on any of the digital programs given they are not of the same standing.

I am not not having the best time. I do not feel interested on my job and find hard to wake up in the morning and do it...or do anything else. It has been a rough year with the pandemic and all.
