MBA vs Master for BA 

Hi All,

I plan to further my study for a year but indecisive between a MBA or Master. Would like to hear your view which is better for BA career enhancement? FYI, I have 4 years working experience as BA and have been in IT industry for almost 15 years.

Hope to hear your suggestion or view.

 

Thanks in advance

KEnt

Re: MBA vs Master for BA 

Kent,

I'm guessing you haven't received input to this question yet because it's a very personal decision.  First, Business Analysis degrees are relatively new.  What BA Masters program are you considering?  Also, keep in mind that it depends on where you work, what your particular company may value more, and the type of work you hope to do in the future.  

An MBA is almost certainly more widely understood and therefore provides more versatility if you find yourself unemployed and looking for work in the future.  But if you feel strongly about doing business analysis work then maybe ultimate versatility isn't what you are looking for.

What Does Success Look Like? I challenge Business Analysts to view requestors’ requirements as an opportunity to define success. Too often, teams fall into a trap focused on requestors’ prescriptive requirements that are meant to serve as roadmaps for developers and testers. When you limit your view of requirements to this prescripti...
