MUST get­ting an MBA af­fect your health and fam­ily?

Strive to ob­tain an MBA with­out dam­ag­ing re­la­tion­ships. Con­sider the fol­low­ing when se­lect­ing a busi­ness school at which to study:

Ask the in­sti­tu­tion about the op­tions avail­able. Is there a flex­i­ble course that al­lows dead­line changes to ac­com­mo­date fam­ily is­sues and life changes?

Does the school un­der­stand the pres­sures on your fam­ily?

Is there a sense of re­spect for you as a stu­dent? and in con­ver­sa­tions with it? If you are treated like a num­ber or sense ar­ro­gance and dis­mis­sive­ness now, when they are re­cruit­ing you, how do you think they will they re­act when life gets tough?

Is the school solid? Huge stress can come from ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a poorly run school and gain­ing a less-than-cred­i­ble MBA. Jon Fos

– ter-ped­ley, dean of Hen­ley Busi­ness School
