Considering moving from Capgemini tech consultant role after 2 years, to Program Manager role at a tech company in Bay Area. I think it’d be a step up in responsibilities & exposure. Would that be viewed as progression and a positive move in the eye of the MBA Admission Officers?

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.

I’m not sure it’s worth it to hang around.
