UBC MBA for people from non business background


MD2926

Hello I everyone. I want to work in college or University administration and want to pursue an MBA for the same. However, The only work ex I have is as a language trainer. Considering my profile, should I go for an MBA first then a job or should I work in administration for a couple of years and then pursue an MBA. Please note that for MBA I would have to take up a loan.

Your guidance will be appreciated.

On another thread you write:Could you tell me what are the chances of someone landing a job in management when they come from non management background? I for one work as a language trainer. I want to get into University administration. Would it be wise to spend so much on an MBA from tier 3 univeristy? 

The MBA works very well for making a transition and, in particular, longer MBAs with internships, projects and elective tracks help make that happen. 
However, I assume that few university administration professionals have MBAs. Why not look at specific functions and take a functional master's, like finance, procurement, HR or marketing and move into the education sector that way?

Can you realistically get into an MBA with your work experience? A quality school will look for a decent career arc and something like 4-6 years of work experience. If you don't have this, you might consider a non-MBA business master's degree from a quality business school.
