Defer acceptance. I've abroad.

*go abroad

If it's #9 and #10 dont do MBA. It's a waste of money to go to shitty schools

Try to defer MBA. If you can't then prioritize your MBA, you will get a lot more opportunities to go abroad. If you go abroad now, you might not come back and miss out on mba. This is all assuming you really want a MBA

MBA

@OP. What are your stats?

Wouldn't you have already had to accept or decline your school offers?

I really want to know which schools OP 😉

Which schools

MBA is worthless.

Best option: defer, second best: intl. MBA will still be there, your gmat score probably won't expire, you'll have more to contribute to the classroom when you go, and another year of valuable work exp = you might get into better schools next year

Why do you want to do international project? Personal or professional development? If former, just start your MBA. If the latter, a follow on question would be is it worth sacrificing a year of trajectory to do the project? If you're planning to leave Accenture, why bother. Changes if you're planning to stay...

I’m a designer in the planning/landscape architecture dept. of a CE firm. Extremely frustrated that after 4+ years and multiple asks, I’m not getting the in-field construction experience I’ve asked for. I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?

When is a co. No longer a ‘start up?’ Considering a co w/@500 folks, 9 yrs old…. Has larger subsidiary w/@1000 folks.

I’ve tried long enough and am exhausted. I want to be somewhere with growth potential. I feel like my experience is making this new co seem more scary than it is…. Thoughts?
