Re: Does RAV support a career change?

Just a disclaimer, this was just a general idea where the outcome is pretty much based on what you do with it.

How would a MBA get you out of the corporate world?
An MBA can give that edge in the professional world to:
1. Justify your choices/changes with recruiters
2. "Adjust" your professional brand if you want to strategize a little to reposition yourself

Be it a start-up, a big corporate or even your own business.
Note that the OP mentioned "a complete career shift/retraining".

While it won't get you out of the corporate world, it may put you up the food chain. Meaning, that that there will be not only more frustration coming from above, but you would be able to translate it below with a relief (hopefully)

Overall, I find MBA of little value these days. Better sharpen/learn particular skills which are essential for your "dream" job.
The value of the MBA itself, indeed maybe not much, but:
1. if it's a good school can really strengthen your profile
2. gives you the freedom to change career path and get a promotion for your efforts
3. incredible network which will help along the way (in the end, these guys will be or already are decision-makers of some sort)

Hope it helps!
