L6 PM, 32 yo. MIS degree from a state school. Should I do a part-time MBA or JD to check a box for my career ascent later or spend all that time and money networking/reading books/developing my interests? JD because I work with lawyers. MBA because Sundar has one. I don’t want to leave tech.

No FT programs because the opportunity cost is too high.

No JD lmao

The pt Wharton mba is good, Haas one is trash

A MBA graduating top of their class would come in as an L4 PM at Google. Not sure what you think you’ll be learning, but can promise you no PT program is checking a box that will move the needle (got into 2 M7s). An MBA is a social insurance program and network - not sure you need the former, and EMBAs provide a watered down version of the latter.

Go to H/S if you want to break into buy side finance. Otherwise, keep on your path.

I’m doing a part time MBA as I agree - opp cost is too high to take time off from work and have salary reduced to 0.

I’m choosing to go back to my Alma Mater remotely for 22.5k all in. Best choice I made. My employer doesn’t care, pays 100%, and is already prepping me for a pivot to a different area of the business upon completion in a few years.

I think MBA is more versatile and respected in big tech than a JD would be.

Hi everyone,
I passed my PMP thanks to this sub group.
I have passed Above Target in the People section, and T in the other sections.
It was 95% situational questions.
Thave used AR's mock exams, and used my wrong answers to figure out my weakness and where I truly stand. I didn't purchase AR's course, just the mock exam simulator.
The 200 agile questions by David McLachlan were amazing, it really helped me in adapting to an agile mindset. TIA simulator n Joseph Phillip is useful.

Hi, I need your honest opinion on this.

I am worried that I am being benchmarked on a wrong job title.

Sales Manager vs International Manager or should it be something else?

My employer is based in China, while I am in France. I remotely manage a global sales team, with team members from around the globe. They all work remotely as well.

Being remote, and managing an international remote team, I would like to know what should be my job title? Any idea or professionals that I may contact, please?

Thank you.

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.
