People choose to get MBA's for a variety of reasons. They might want specific skills to further them within their respected organizations, or they may want to make a complete career change. Unfortunately, that decision is sometimes forced upon an individual who suddenly finds himself/herself downscaled or outsourced.
In that case, returning to school may be a bittersweet experience. There may be residual anger, depression, and anxiety over a lost job culminating in a sense of frustration that may impede educational progress. When the road swerves, take time to recover. Stop and assess the situation. Talk to friends and family members about returning to school. Brainstorm ideas for a new career move. Is there something you've always wanted to try but never had the opportunity? Perhaps you've always wanted to be a teacher, or marine specialist. The point is to seriously consider your other skills, those underutilized talents that could be making you money.
If you find yourself in this situation, it's important to take a step back. Reassess your goals and enter the classroom with confidence.
Depending on your financial situation, you may qualify for tuition support by way of government grants, scholarships, or loans. There are plenty of options so don't be afraid to take the time you need to make the right choice.
