I have always been very entrepreurial in spirit, and have always dreamed of developing startup business's as a career. However I have found that while I am in school it very hard to prioritize my time, therefore I have put my Ideas aside untile I get my degree. I am currently finishing up my B.A. degree in International Business, and maintaining a 3.71 average. I am going to graduate summer of 2011. Now that my graduation date is closely coming, I am torn between a few decisions; I am considering an MBA program (preferably Babson, or another Highly entrepreneurial school), I am thinking of applying for a job with a small startup or a consulting firm, and lastly I am thinking of pursuing one of my many different ideas.
The Idea of getting an MBA is great but the truth of the matter is, is it worth the cost? I have taken several classes now in college, and learned a great deal, but at the same time I feel like I haven't learned enough. I have always been interest in startups that have to do with E-commerce, so I have thought about taking classes to learn web design and programming in order to reduce the startup cost. Do you think that might be more beneficial that an MBA?
I love the idea of working with a successful entrepreneur or a consulting firm to get the exposure to several different business', but now is the worst time since the great depression to be looking for a job.
Lastly possibly starting a company. The problem with that is I have had several different ideas to start companies, but for some reason I lack the passion behind the idea, and am constantly second guessing if it will work or not. I am not sure if I lack confidence, or if my ideas are just not great.
Point being I am looking for some advice on my situation. Thank you in advance.
