MBA News: Senior Consultant Rachel Beck Tells Chicago Tribune School Selection Is Key

mbaMission’s own Senior Consultant Rachel Beck was featured prominently in an article published in the Chicago Tribune this week. Titled “Make It Your Business to Save Money,” the article weighed the costs and possible career benefits of investing in an MBA program, identifying important variables that applicants ought to examine carefully. Beck emphasizes the importance of finding the right school to fit your career goals, rather than focusing too narrowly on rankings. “A lot of MBA applicants don’t look at the whole picture. There are all these other factors that should go into your decision making,” Beck notes, adding that location, add-on opportunities and associated costs (such as studying abroad) and opportunities to socialize within a robust student and alumni network should all fall within an applicant’s range of considerations.
