I'm just about to complete my third semester of an online MBA program. My career goals are not to work at a major corporation. I'm currently a young (26 years old) General Manager at a 350 person manufacturing company. My division is small (8 people), yet I wear the title. We acquired this business six months ago and my CEO promoted me to General Manager to lead the division.
I started this MBA program at the same time as the acquisition to gain formal training in business. My bachelors is in biomedical engineering. I am not necessarily hoping my MBA gets me a different or better job. I just wanted to learn and not be limited in my options.
But results matter most and I'm already in a position of management. I also have extreme favor within my company.
After 3 semesters of school, I am extremely tempted to drop out and buy textbooks and books off amazon to learn what I am lacking. I've been a student of MT for over a year now, and am curious what people would recommend here.
