Career change into finance - get experience first or MBA?


Lorenzz

As a 31 year old looking for a career change into something with a better prospect and a more challenging and stimulating environment, I'm considering studying and MBA and making a move into finance. I'm interested especially in Marketing. I've got a BA in Sociology but have always had jobs to pay the bills (admin kind of jobs), so I haven't built a consistent CV in one particular path or gathered relevant experience.

Would it be more important to try get some experience first in Marketing via an entry level job, or is looking for an MBA first the right idea?

Thanks!
