My firm is paying for my MBA and if I leave now I’ll have to pay anything they’ve paid all back. Assuming I leave now, would it be possible for me to get a student loan to pay the firm back or would it have to be a personal loan since it’s not going directly to school to but rather paying the firm for school? What are my options? Has anyone gone through this before? Thanks!!
