What do people do after getting an MBA? They must be for something other than coming back to finance for a slightly higher pay cheque...

@BAML1 only idiots do MBA to "learn the subject matters". MBAs are mainly for networking and a career change

MBAs are highly overrated. You could learn the subject matters you're curious about by taking online classes for just a few hundred dollars without giving up your job.

Not sure what kind of non-finance related field would result in a higher pay check though. Maybe starting your own company/joining a stat-up that hits big, but those are both very risky options that might not result in a big pay out.

Wanna get out of finance I take it, OP?

No, actually. I came here from non-finance but actually really enjoy it. I just see a lot of chat on here about MBAs and was wondering what makes them worth paying a hundred grand for.

It's more about the network

Exactly. And it's usually a waste of money.

Is it? Accounting top level scenario best case is probably 450 all in. Comparable salary in Banking at the same level is 2-10mm even in this shit environment. Then for many roles (PE) the MBA is basically a requirement for pedigree

anyone ever transition from IT audit and attestation to cyber? if so how did you do it? I'm an M1 with sec+, CISA and currently working on CISSP. I also a DOD clearance.

Considering leaving Bain with 2 years in SM role, HSW MBA, and 11 years since undergrad. Google role is non-technical Cloud Strategy. Unsure of title or level at this point - called "lead" but contact indicated flexibility. Would be remote in a non-SF/NY location. Mgr indicated it was technically an individual contributor role though I would be managing 2 people. What comp/level should I expect (Assuming L6?)? What is the significance of the IC role if I'm technically managing 2?
