I have a BS in Mech Eng and a MBA in Operations Management. My career path has taken the following steps: Mfg Eng, Design Eng, Svc Management, Sales and Bus Mgmt, now in Bus. Development/Marketing. I'm struggling to break through to the next level. In my company, and industry, this is a General Manager position.
I know that a firm grasp of financial accounting is a common trait to virtually all of the executives in my company and larger US Corporations. I sense this has as much to do with experience as training. However, I'm thinking a 2nd MBA in finance (at the company's expense) might be a difference maker in terms of short term prospects and long term benefits.
Does anyone have any experience with that combination? Is it worth it? I know its a company expense but its still my time.
