Is an MBA for working professionals worth the time, effort and expense? Some say an emphatic yes, particularly for the network.
Some people think it’s a good hedge to get an MBA during the economic slowdown. Adrian Burstein is one of them. For the last two years, Burstein spent an intense week each month attending classes to get his MBA and the rest of the month working on team projects.
“I basically had no life for the last two years,” Burstein said.
But ask Burstein if the money investment and upheaval to his work-life balance was worth it and he gives a confident response: “Definitely. I gained the knowledge and network to grow my business.”
