Thinking about it myself and wondering what the rest of you think. Would be good to know your detailed thoughts in the comments as well.

  • Hey @mikey - tell us more about yourself... what do you currently do, and reasons for doing an MBA?

    I think it's a fab topic :)

  • I'm currently considering it or have thought about it before
    Quite a few colleagues are doing it. I'm in IBD, so it's not like it's crazy-popular like say in consulting, but quite a few have done it, and more are considering (like myself).

    Most people I know that have done it have changed careers, and I think it's quite an attractive proposition at this point. Getting a bit burned out and I think MBA might give me a fresh perspective on what I'd like to pursue.

    Obviously downside is the application process, GMAT, and cost.

    Thoughts?

    I occasionally think about doing one, but it's the cost (more in terms of loss of earnings than actual outlay) that tends to put me off. Also, I'm getting a bit old for it perhaps. I think the biggest thing people seem to get out of an good MBA programme is a great network. That's the main reason I'd do it.
