MBA v. MS physics v. Do Both
I am a senior and will be earning my BS in accounting (3.95 GPA). My college is encouraging me to attend graduate school. Accounting was not something I did out of interest, although I found out I am pretty decent at it. I told myself if I went to graduate school I would choose something I am interested in, but an MBA is very enticing because of the career opportunities, available. If I did the MBA (after getting some work experience) I would go to a different university, that offers a better program and accreditation. As far as personal interest I am attracted to my current schools MS in applied physics, specifically materials science/nanotechnology. I imagine I could do both- MBA full-time and MS part-time. I was also positing that having a technical background could open doors to specific roles, where management is required to have technical aptitude.
