As adults, our careers have been shaped by experiences--both good and bad--as well as visions for the future.
For those interested in going back to school, whether it’s for a bachelor’s degree or MBA, the options may seem overwhelming. When to start? Where to go? What to study? But, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.
Before deciding on anything, think about where you are now and where you want to be in one, five, or even 10 years. Do you want to stay in your field, but advance? Get promoted within your company? Or, change industries completely? By being honest about your goals, you’ll more effectively narrow down the post-secondary options that will get you from point A to wherever you’re aiming.
Length of Program
Take into consideration whether you’d like to take classes part-time or full-time. You’ll be done with your program quicker if you go full-time, but you might find it better for your schedule to space out your classes.
Kimberly Arnold-Robinson is a Ducere MBA student who decided to pursue her degree while also balancing full-time jobs as a Sales Development Specialist and a mother. It was because of her other commitments that she chose a flexible, online degree over the two other MBA programs she got accepted into— Pepperdine University and Loyola Marymount University.
Cost of Program
What is the return-on-investment (ROI) of the program you’re looking at? What are the payment plan options? Are there loans or scholarships available to you? These are all important financial factors to take into account.
Additionally, does the university you’re looking at include all costs in their advertised price? Do you have to pay extra for textbooks or miscellaneous fees such as student, registration or even graduation fees? At Ducere Global Business School, the price you see is the price you pay, but other schools aren’t as upfront with their costs, so definitely read the fine print.
