Mr. Evolving Teacher

About Me:

Hello! I am a credentialed public school teacher looking to leap into the next phase of my (changing) career. I have spent the past 3 years teaching economics at the high school level; prior to that, I taught world history at the middle school level. In a former life, I was a copywriter/editor at multiple corporations.

It has been several years since I studied at the undergraduate or graduate level. Also, my M.A. degree was earned through a Ph.D. program. How do both of these factors impact my chances? Thank you!

    Hi Mr. Evolving Teacher,
    I like that you have clear goals for the future. This is Debbie Choy from mbaMission. While the education sector is not an industry that traditionally sends a lot of applicants to business school, the goals you describe of wanting to build and run organizations will certainly benefit from a management education. That said, the more vividly you can describe this future vision, the easier it will be for the Admissions Committee to understand your goals and how an MBA will help you achieve them. For example, do you envision running an education company? Or a nonprofit? While you’re not expected to present your business plan in your apps, having some specifics will show you’ve done your diligence and know what skills …
