A couple of questions for you:
1. I have still been thinking quite a bit about changing career paths and getting my MBA (I'm working in a university now), but I have two concerns with this path. A) Is the cost (roughly 40K) worth the payoff? B) Will I like the career path more than my current one? I have visited an MBA class and found the topic being discussed that day very engaging and something I was generally excited about, but it really was just one class session. Also, since I already have a graduate degree, is earning a second one really a value add?
2. If I stay in academia, I will likely not go on to a doctoral program since I have no interest in research work, but I worry that this course of action may stunt my career growth.
I think what I'm looking for is just a few guiding questions to help me better frame my ideas on these paths. I have tried to think of questions that would help me work it out, but it just isn't as good as asking you.
