Why Earn an MBA?

Each person has a different reason for pursuing their MBA. An MBA degree is a great way to learn business principles, build management skills, and expand knowledge. However, an MBA is not a panacea that will guarantee success and riches. What an MBA will do is help prepare you (intellectually and experientially) for success and riches. It will demonstrate to employers that you have the self-discipline and determination to achieve, despite tough challenges. Ultimately, an MBA is part of a self-actualization journey that only a small percentage of life-long learners can fully appreciate.
