MBA or MS? That is the question

MBA or MS? That is the question

Just because you've narrowed your grad school options to the study of business, doesn't mean that an MBA degree is the only way to go. It might make sense to pursue a master's degree in a related subject such as marketing, accounting, finance or international business. On the other hand, you can fine-tune an MBA degree to your interests by choosing a specific emphasis or concentration. So which will it be? We've outlined the pros and cons, now it's up to you decide.

What's right for you, an MBA or an MS in business?
