Answered: “Should I Do An MBA?”

August 19, 2014

Here at CurrencyFair, not all of our wonderful customers are small businesses, expatriates living abroad, people buying foreign property, and so on.

We have one special group of customers that always make our day: students.

Our student customers are having the time of their life learning new skills and meeting new people.

Many of our student customers are spending time in another country at a foreign university and so their learning and exposure to new experiences is heightened even further.

“Should I Do An MBA?”

One question that can arise for many students (and for long-time graduates too) is the question of whether or not to do a Master of Business Administration. Should I Do An MBA?

Below we’re sharing a fascinating infographic which reveals a number of key measures which may help sway a prospective MBA student one way or the other.

First though, we liked these ten ‘under-rated’ reasons by Eric Jackson on why you might want to go and study for an MBA:

  1. The chance to stop and reflect on some big business issues.
  2. The chance to make some lifelong friends who will accomplish great things over their careers in business.
  3. The chance to realize how little you understand about the world.
  4. The chance to learn about how to get a bunch of high-strung, Type-A personalities to work together as a team.
  5. The chance to think about the global economy and not just your little world where you used to work.
  6. The chance to interact with Professors who will really challenge you.
  7. The chance to go listen to as many accomplished executives when they come to talk at your school.
  8. The chance to refocus yourself.
  9. The chance to learn about managing people.
  10. The chance to learn how to get up and string a few sentences together.
