Possible Options?


Hello everyone!

I'm an electrical engineer with 4 years of experience.

If i wanted to complete my masters and perhaps phD aswell, i have 2 options. The first would be to complete MSc in the same field, which is electrical engineering and then do the phD, the second option would be to go for a career change and perhaps new "better" opportunities with the MBA or MPM then complete phD. Am i correct?

This depends on your goals, and what you want to research for your PhD. If you don't care what you research in your PhD, then you should not do a PhD.

An MBA isn't a common route into a PhD - it's more of a professionally-oriented degree that aids in career support to find management-level jobs after graduation. Not to say that MBA --> PhD doesn't happen, but it's rather rare.

More common would be a research-oriented MSc where you would start work on some specialized topic and leverage this research into a PhD.
