Well, why do you want to pursue an MBA? What do you think you will get out of it? I find that the best business cases are usually the ones that are authentic, so id focus on figuring that out first. After that, you can move on, what does the practice get out of me having an mba?

Have the firm pay for it...ha that is not gonna happen. Just get one and pay for it yourself. Then bounce and be happy. Fyi...my income went up 50% after my top 10 mba.

1. Do you want to continue as a security consultant? Yes? Does that sector sell security solutions/services? Sounds like a business case. No? Does your new sector sell solutions/services? Sounds like a business case.

I should add that moat firms do not pay for their security people to get an mba because its easier for them to go hire people w mbas than to create them themselves. Also, most firms are doing just fine without mbas in the security space. That is because their security strategy offerings are tied more to mapping to NIST, ISO, etc than doing a traditional strategy assessment to determine their security approach

KPMG 1, thank you for bringing that up. I believe there is more detail other than a basic case of selling that firm would need in order for me to pursue MBA, especially if they are paying for it. May be even transition in to another area? That’s what they would possibly look at. P1 I believe there is a lot more for me to learn in terms of the business side of corps that acquiring technical knowledge won’t help me elevate to. Thank you for that perspective. I need to start developing an approach that will be successful in regards with the firm helping pay for it.

Hi guys! I’m looking to make friends in Boston. I’m in my late 20s and just moved in the fall, and I’ve realized I haven’t made new friends all winter! Any suggestions on potential groups? I’m an avid painter, sailor, and reader of really bad romcoms (if there’s a related book club), and I’m a very very slow runner (like back of the pack 10-12 min mile, it’s like everyone in Boston is a marathon runner??). Thanks in advance!!
