Thoughts on Masters in Environmental Management programs? UCSB, Yale, etc. I have a non-technical degree (Bachelor of Arts) and have been in management consulting at a Big 4 the last 5 years. I want to pivot my career to do something more meaningful - make a positive impact in the world, rather than continuing to help rich corporations get richer. Thinking that doing a Masters will help arm myself with environmental / sustainability knowledge and a network.

I hate open floor plan offices. It’s challenging to focus/ be productive in open environments. No I don’t want to talk every 25 minutes to my coworkers. I want to do my job and go home. Every time you interrupt me, I have to stay here longer to hit billable hours.
