Welcome back to another episode of Business Talks! This week’s episode features my good friend Justin Anderson who recently completed his MBA and stops by to give his take on the program. If you’re interested in what higher ed business education looks like or are considering enrolling in an MBA program yourself, then you are going to really enjoy this episode.
Some of the topics we discussed include:
- Is it Still Worth Getting an MBA Today? Justin breaks down his MBA experience, his rationale for getting one, and when it makes sense for a professional to pursue a master’s degree in business.
- Online Education and Remote Learning: Justin’s last semester at grad school was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic. This forced him to complete his degree online, giving him a unique perspective on the pros and cons of online vs. in-person learning and what this means for the future of College and Universities going forwards.
- Getting Real-World Experience: Part of any good MBA program is the job opportunities and internships students are given access to, as well as the many networking opportunities available on campus. Justin details this side of the MBA program and why he believes this is one of the main benefits of pursuing an MBA.
- Job Searching During a Pandemic: We wrap up the show talking about the greatest lessons Justin learned from his experience and how he is applying what he learned to land a job in the tough economic climate brought about by coronavirus.
