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!
