The Future of MBA

Thanks to my loyal blog contributor for sharing on this.

  • High-paying jobs are no longer guaranteed to graduates, and the opportunity costs of two years of training—especially for those who still hold jobs and are not looking to change fields—loom ever larger.
  • a senior partner in a consulting firm, who, when asked pointedly if he would advise a highly successful junior person with several years at the firm who was intent on a career in consulting whether an MBA would be valuable for his future, answered, "Definitely not."
  • the full-time MBA is increasingly aimed at "career switchers."
