Got my MBA at 38; tripled my pre-Mba, six figure salary in 6 years. Go for it and pick b-schools wisely If I wasn’t risk adverse, could possible increase 7X this year

Wow, What did you do pre and post MBA?

Thats a great idea. I got my MBA when I was 27 and did it part-time as well. It really helped me to better deal with dysfunctional teams, analyze issues, and deliver better presentations.

PM me and we can chat
