Why an MBA?
The professional benefits of an MBA are widely known: wage and positional mobility, the development of tactical competencies that improve performance and develop leadership capabilities, and the network benefit that comes from the cohort experience. In addition to the career benefit of the degree it is important to consider the lasting personal benefit that an MBA affords:
- Greater ability to make decisions and craft a self-directed, chosen, meaningful career
- Higher lifetime earnings which is a key driver for overall personal well-being
- Financial literacy throughout the range of financial decisions an individual will make over a lifetime
Over a lifetime, working professionals will engage in a wide range of transactional activity, including but not limited to: buying, accepting and issuing equity and other financial instruments, financing houses and vehicles, investing in retirement and dependent education accounts, receiving options, and ultimately self-guiding a career path that produces financial and personal benefit. An MBA increases your overall proficiency in maximizing the value you receive from these decisions and provides increased opportunity to live a self-directed and meaningful life, both professionally and personally. The value of an MBA does not stop with work but extends into more effective self-leadership and the ability to contribute to civic engagements, drive cause-based initiatives and projects, and live a more consciously chosen life.
