What is the best MBA to get to work in social impact/ non profit focused work ?

Yale SOM and Notre Dame actually put an emphasis on it. Any MBA is going to be well regarded. And honestly, consider how much you want to emphasize it during application. Remember average starting salary is a big factor in school rankings. You want to have a clear story, and it might help to say it's your long-term goal. While EY1 is right that an MBA is not required, and experience is great, commercial experience and an MBA create an uncommon resume for nonprofits. And depending where you're going (e.g., Bridgespan), they could be table stakes.

Not sure an MBA is needed anymore. I would seek out advice from the various people who work in corporate responsibilities departments either via a LinkedIn search or a general search and chat with them to see if this specific degree is needed or something else. Experience in this area may be considered a he k of a lot more then an MBA.

Hi Everyone, I have been an HR Generalist for close to 7 years. I had good managers and poor managers in between.

I really enjoy being a Generalist but I don’t know if I want to be an HR Manager. Any suggestions on other areas of HR I should consider?

What does everyone think about the probability of a recession? I got two interesting opinions yesterday. My loan officer (we are closing on a house next week) thinks a recession is imminent which will push down rates and give me the ability to refinance. A financial advisory (he helps me manage a relatively small IRA) thinks we have a 20% chance of a recession and this pullback is a good opportunity to buy broad based index funds (as a long term investment). I realize each have motives.

Should synthetic abortion be a thing? I.e. it is made legal for a man to declare before a judge that he wants no part in a child’s life prior to the child being born. He then has no requirement to pay child support but will also never have the right to see the child. Essentially, it’s abortion from the male side. If both man and woman are required to create a pregnancy, but only the woman gets a say after that if the child will be born, is that fair to the man?

Interviewed for an in-house position. I was told that the position was remote through the majority of next year, but they would eventually like someone on site. Definitely understandable, of course! However, there seemed to be some flexibility here as some employees will remain remote indefinitely. I am interested in working remotely and flying out as needed, etc. Any room for negotiation? If so, at what point do I bring it up in the interview process?
