Over the past few years I’ve been working in the healthcare field on the administrative side of things. It has been a good experience and I want to be able to advnace my career.
My goal is to complete my degree in three years and begin moving on to bigger and better things. I’ve spoken with a lot of MBA grads and they’ve all had good things to say about their journey through school and their job prospects once they finished.
My main focus will be corporate management with an added focus on healthcare administration. I’ve found a lot of useful information at this site that has helped me learn more about the profession and how to advance my career.
One of the tricky things about an MBA is that they may not help your job prospects unless you get into a good school. This is tough for people who either did not do well in college, or those who do not have much work experience to put on their resume. It can be extrememly competitive getting into a top tier MBA program, so wish me luck as I apply.
The other issue with getting an MBA degree is the fact that it is extremely expensive. It can cost upwards of $100,000 for a degree from a good school, and it can be difficult to pay off this debt if you don’t end up with a good job after school. I’m pretty confident that I’ll find something when I finish due to my personal connections and work experience, but not everyone has these things to fall back on.
Anyway, please feel free to leave a comment if you have any advice for me or if you are thinking about going to get your MBA degree.
