Disclaimer: I just want to throw this question out there for some insight. I'm not even in college yet, I'm a high school senior, but I am still thinking about my postgraduate prospects. I'll be starting my freshman year of college, majoring in Computer Science, this fall.
Although I'm trying to stay very open minded about the future, I plan to start working right after graduation, to start paying off my undergrad school loans, and start saving up for larger future expenses.... like going back to school for a Masters. I originally intended to go back as an English or Philosophy major, but I think that an MBA could be of great value as well. The reason I want to enter these fields of study is to broaden my skill set and diversify my learning experiences. I tend to lean towards the humanities, in terms of general interest, but because I have an aptitude for STEM fields, I'm planning to pursue a degree in CS. I don't want to get stuck in any single mindset. It might be too early to pose such questions, but I don't think it hurts to ask.
Is an MBA worth the time taken off of a job, the money lost from leaving a steady paycheck for full-time schooling and tuition, and the hold put on my personal life? How do you know when you should get an MBA (right after undergrad, after being established in career, etc.)? What advantages, if any, will I have in the job market, and achieving financial stability (if that's even possible after paying off expensive grad school loans haha)? What can I do with an MBA? Does it open up more career opportunities? Is it possible to double major, with English?
Thank you for reading this far!
