If you’re thinking about applying to do an MBA, the advice I would give is to talk to as many people as possible about it. Reach out to those doing an MBA or those who’ve done them. Don’t feel bad about asking for advice – people who’ve done an MBA love to talk about it! I hassled so many people at my previous job who I knew had done an MBA and their advice was invaluable. It also helped to say out loud that I wanted to do an MBA. When you tell people your goals, you’re more likely to hold yourself accountable to them, and you’ll be astonished at the support you’ll receive.
