Words of Wisdom

MBAs Answer: "Knowing what you know now, would you choose to get an MBA again?"

I would do it all over again without hesitation. It challenged me in ways I never anticipated and it raised my standards and my work ethic to a level I did not know existed. I expect far more out of myself now than I ever did. Oh yeah, it was also a total blast.

I would most definitely choose to earn an MBA again. The people I met at business school will be a personal and professional asset for many years to come. I'm certain I would not have met such outstanding people had I not chosen to earn an MBA.

-University of Chicago '99; Investment Banking

I would absolutely choose it again for the training and perspective it has provided. But I will say that it did not help me figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. An MBA can only make that decision-making worse because it can expose you to more possibilities. I went through three jobs after business school before I finally settled into something that I enjoy and is challenging. The best advice I have is get the degree but don't expect it to give you answers about you or your life.
