I decided to pursue doing what I am doing (procurement) and move into a banking institution. Pay is good. Better than outside. A D in IB can earn high 6 digits. The D in my department i guess earn half of that but still, a pay check of that amount still makes life comfortable. You may not drive a Bently but I'll still settle for a BMW or Jag. Plus you have less stress and you get to spend more time with your kids. If any retrenchment going on, IB goes first as we are the ones that save money and makes the whole system ticks. Moreover, the interview is less rigourous. You don't have to sit for test. Just need to know your stuff well and how to relate
Man. I got side tracked. And yes, MBA helps in securign the post. Else, they won't even want me as I have no industry experience. With everyone nowadays studying masters, degree value is diluted. Do the maths
