Unpopular opinion: The MBA is an outdated degree. At one point it used to be valuable because employers only had a resume to look at and brand name mattered a lot. Nowadays, everything you need to learn is online and there are alternative ways to get your foot in the door to pretty much any job if you want it badly enough. I think the “network” that the school says you’re paying for is just a marketing tactic. Feel free to agree or disagree.

24, thankful to have my bachelors and masters, little debt...1st gen & trying to build my nest egg. However, I just feel so directionless/empty right now, in some ways. Accenture has not enabled me to explore several areas of interest in my first year, and I cannot see a long-term here. It is no time to pivot. Have considered a MD/PhD/MBA...know it’s in the future, but no idea what, when, or where. Just feeling like the days are passing and I’m just doing my best. Any thoughts?
