So, what is one to do with an MBA in Detroit?

I stepped foot into the city two years ago, only to attend classes at Wayne State. Since then I have fallen in love with the city, started a career, and now have my piece of paper with the letters MBA. Throughout my course of study I was told that an MBA is no longer of value. Everyone has one. Perhaps it is more common, but it is not useless. It seems that for most, the Wayne MBA was a means to a promotion at an auto company at a job outside the city. For me, I plan on continuing to convince people to apply their education in the city as I venture into the world of starting my own business in the city.

    Your WSU diploma will make a great wrap for gifting this holiday season.

    Nice wall decoration for your new place?

    A MBA is as useful as you make it – figure out what you want to do and then if you can do it in Detroit. Sometimes you have to leave the place you love to follow your dreams.

    Yes, follow your dreams…

    Try rolling you MBA diploma up really tightly and using it like a magical wand to whisk you off to Lollipop Land where Gumdrops grow on trees, and the rivers run with Chocolate sauce…

    …and where businesses go “Ohhh” and “Ahhh” when they see your expensive sheet of paper…

    Congratulations on your new degree! That is wonderful. Ignore those that tell you your advanced degree isn’t worth anything – only between 5 and 6 percent of U.S. citizens have a master’s degree or higher. Be proud of your accomplishment.
