I don’t think there’s is the binary answer for that. Your current job may not require it and if you intend to make this that your last stop on the career train it’s OK but you also have to think about future growth

some folks believe the degree is the end all be all.

Still hustle still learn still grow.

Duly noted!
If I do go through with the MBA, and being I the management consulting field (want to continue on that path too), I consider a concentration in finance to be the biggest bang for the buck. Thoughts or suggestions on that?

Hi all,

Please suggest.
I've 3 yoe in techno-functional domain.
I wish to go into technical (development) profile now, but not as a fresher. I want to continue with 3 yoe.
But the issue is, I have no (dev) project to show in interview as an 3 yoe person.

I've learned Java, springboot, restfulAPIs, kafka, but still hesitant to go for interviews as I do not have projects to discuss.

I shall be very thankful to you if you help me here.
How/where can i go to make projects now to justify 3yoe?
