It's the time of year when prospective applicants are preparing for the next admissions season. If you too are planning for next year, you may be wondering:
- Should you go to graduate school?
- To which kind of program should you apply?
To answer those questions "Begin with the end in mind” as Dr. Stephen Covey advises. Unless you seek a graduate degree strictly for personal growth and the intellectual benefits -- pretty rare -- you should pursue the degree in order to advance professionally or achieve a professional goal. That advice means you need to have a professional goal.
For example, you should pursue an MBA if you need the credential or education to advance in your career or move into a business management role. The IT person who wonders whether to pursue an MS in computer science or an MBA needs to decide whether he wants to progress in technical roles or if he wants a broader degree that will prepare him for management positions. Does he want to deepen his skill set or complement his previous education? If the former, the MS is more appropriate; if the latter, the MBA will better prepare him for his desired career.
