So you’ve decided you want to go to business school – now what? Assuming you want an MBA, you have two options: the traditional MBA (full-time, part-time, or online) and the Executive MBA.
If you’re interested in switching careers through an MBA, you’ll want to do some soul searching before you apply to a particular program. While an MBA may be an excellent vehicle for career change, it may also require a hefty investment. Therefore, it’s a good idea to figure out where you want your MBA to lead you before you pursue this degree. That process might also help you compile a stronger application essay that contains carefully planned long-term career goals.
