Is a Masters in Business Administration Needed?

Hey Neighbors!

Here is another quick question for you.  I did a post regarding my sons starting their own business earlier.  Now what I would like to know is, how necessary is a masters in business administration.  Would it be helpful in running their business?  I know it may sound silly now, but my oldest son would eventually like to move into management.  He is presently starting this business with his brother, but would like to eventually get into management.  He has talked of hotel management.

He read the story not too long ago of Conrad Hilton and really enjoyed it.  Since then he has discussed working in a hotel and working up to management.  We actually have a friend who owns a hotel in Chicago.  We stay there on a regular basis and have become friends.

I think we will need to start a list of the benefits of going to college for a masters in business administration. And perhaps we will talk with our friend in Chicago and see if she thinks it would be helpful.  Oh, if they would only stay little!  All these new decisions to make.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Do you have a masters in business administration?  Was it helpful when applying for a position?  Thanks so much neighbors!

My experience is the more education the better. Once where I worked they hired 2 young kids out of college as buyers. No experience, etc. I was told it doesn't matter if they don't have experience, the reason they were hired is because they had come from a good school which proves they are capable of learning, didn't matter so much what they studied but that they had completed it. They worked maybe a year and moved onto a better job, but they had gotten experience.
So my answer would be yes go to school for business, you can use that education in a lot of different jobs.

I agree that an MBA would be very helpful for a young business professional. My husband earned his MBA and found it very helpful in his professional career. Our daughter just completed her Master's degree and I have a Master's degree in education. Earning a Master's degree is valuable for not just the knowledge and the professional contacts. It also shows a high level of dedication and commitment. Tell him to go for it! Best wishes to you all!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
