Can't seem to find any companies that sponsor MBA's or similar masters degree for Account executives/managers? Any tips?

I understand sales may not necessarily need a masters degree to move forward but I would like to pivot into strategy or operations at some point in my career. Any insight would be much appreciated!

I think most that even have a program - do reimbursement these days- not a true sponsorship

sorry should have said sponsorship/reimbursement. who do you know of?

MAANG? That would be my first guess.

I know large med device companies will pay for a class or two per year. It’s not much but it helps

Try connecting with people on LinkedIn and find out if their companies are sponsoring or not.
