Yup, you can do it. You can enroll complete the pre reqs and then do the PhD. I did MBA like that DM for info and good luck I always wanted to go that route but became a consultant 😂😂

During my MBA days, I saw various experienced professionals pursuing part-time PhD from my B-school. I'm quite motivated to pursuing the line myself. However, I feel the demanding work hours of Consulting might come in the way.

Most likely firms don’t care about your academic pursuits as long as they don’t interfere with your job duties. Question is, how likely would you be able to find tenure track positions with a part time MBA? (And finding those with H1b sponsorship could be another excercise)

Wait, I am asking for PhD. I already have an MBA.

Sorry read as PhD. Typo,

Yi can

I assume it's the states coz they are asking for visa type. Can someone please advise and confirm? 🙏

Parents turn 70 next year. I’m trying to figure out what to expect, how to prepare for retirement, etc. Any suggestions? Feeling overwhelmed, not sure where to start.

They are mobile right now but we had a bad scare where dad was hospitalized overnight and I can see that they need someone for these once a year events ( which will probably get more frequent).

Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
