I want an MBA, but I have way too much debt from doing an out of state undergrad program and I know scholarships are great but unless it’s close to a full ride I don’t think it’d be enough for me. I’m the trailblazer in my family so I really just have myself to rely on. I’d like to hear￼ about everyone’s experiences with (or plans for) funding their MBA. Please also include any amount of debt you currently carry from undergrad + the cost and length of your MBA program.

PS: Is the designation reasonable? I see people with 6-7 YOE as managers and with 8-9 YOE as senior managers.

Why do consulting firms keep doing this to themselves? What went wrong with America’s $44 million vaccine data system? The CDC ordered software that was meant to manage the vaccine rollout.
