Yep, after writing about quitting my 2nd job and how it was beneficial for my energy level, I am already on a new project. A few months ago, I applied for a MBA specialized in financial services. I received my confirmation and I juststarted at the end of August. I made this choice for several reasons; here are some of them in this post.
Networking, networking, networking
Since the very first day I started my bachelor in finance, every single teacher was saying the same thing over and over again: if you want to succeed some day, work hardâ€¦ on your network. People are the key to financial freedom. In fact, networking is one of the best leverage examples we can find. You never know when you will need to get a job because your ex-employer closed your department. Making friends working in the same field that you are is priceless. At one point, you will know the people you work with and maybe make some other good connections in other department. However, you will restrain your network within your employer. A MBA is a good place to meet with very interesting people outside your work environment.
For a better future ahead
We are living in a world of diplomas. During my first year at my bachelor degree, I attempted to a very interesting conference about management. The guy was a VP of some financial company. From all the things he said that day, I remembered one thing until today; your bachelor degree does not worth much. Most people dislike this comment and thought he was arrogant. In fact, he could not be closer to the truth. What is a simple bachelor degree when people have masters, PHDâ€™s, CFAâ€™s and so on. Adding a MBA to my bachelor degree, CSI and CFP courses will add some spices to my resume. I know I will need these 3 letters beside my name if want to go higher up.
I would also like to have my wife stay at home and raise our kids. She is still on maternity leaves for another year and hopefully at that time, I would be able to offer her to stay at home and not going back to work. As she is working in a daycare, she would gladly take care of our own children instead of otherâ€™s.
Increase my level of personal knowledge
I am always looking for more stuff to learn. I think you develop a better way of thinking by knowing more facts and techniques. I think that this MBA will improve my management skills and techniques to another level. I will be able to learn from teachers, simulations, other students and everybodyâ€™s experience all at once. It is a great market for food for thoughts!
Another thing I like about this MBA is that I can do it while I am working. In fact, I have to take one weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) to go in class. I know that there will be a lot of group work but still, Iâ€™ll be able to manage between my job and family. It will probably give me another perspective in regards to writing this blog. Iâ€™ll probably have other ideas and would like to share them with you! Is there anyone starting or doing an MBA right now among you? I would like to know about it, maybe we can share some tricks for time management!
