Hi! I'm new here so I'm not sure if this topic has been discussed before (if so, please excuse me). I've always wanted to pursue an MBA after gaining sufficient work experience, but now I'm really split between whether to pursue an MBA (and if it's worth the money) or to pursue another MSc instead. I hope I can gain some insights from the community here. Thank you!

Depends on your career goals friend. What do you want to do after your degree?

I am not sure yet.. I feel like I'm in limbo currently. I guess it's a good thing to start thinking about that I guess. TY!
