Whether earned full-time, part-time, or online, an MBA degree grants an opportunity to propel your career forward. We reached out to Michael Horn, a prominent speaker, and writer about the future of education, and works with a portfolio of education organisations to improve the lives of students to seek his comment on enrolling in an MBA programme as the job market turns murky.
Horn is the author of Choosing College : How to Make Better Learning Decisions Throughout Your Life , a book designed to students understand why they are going to school and how to make better choices, as well as aids schools in designing better experiences. He is currently a programme advisor at Quantic School of Business & Technology.
When asked if professionals should pursue an MBA qualification at a time when retrenchment and layoffs are making up most of the headlines across the globe, Horn told U2B that getting more education and upskilling is important.
However, Horn added that whether students should pursue an MBA, is a question that they need to answer for them as individuals in their specific circumstances.
