I think it’s fine if you have a logical reason as to why? And are you saying you’ll probably spend 6-8 months in that role? Maybe think about other ways too where you can get that exposure like through outside work activities or volunteering or study. As it would also be a plus to get some months under your belt at your new manager level.

Yes reasoning mainly being a hedge against getting denied. My Gmat was below avg so I applied with some waivers this yea. The goal of moving roles would be better WLB (not that I’d say this - it would actually be good to get some forecast experience) in the hopes of developing a stronger app with more time.

I’m 27 and im at a juncture in my career. I’ve been in a job for eight months and plan to stay two years. After the two years is up I’ll choose to either go back to school for a MBA in Marketing (the industry im working in) or I’ll go work for another company. Are Marketing MBA’s worth it? I project my next job will pay $100-150k. Current $85k, and I let them lowball me because I liked the company. Would it make more sense to get a new job and just ride the market?
