I just wanted some advice as to whether or not I should pursue an MBA to further my nascent film producer/studio executive career. Cal State-Dominguez has a program in which you can get your MBA in any number of concentrations completely online in 18-24 months. Would this be a good idea in my late-20s? I will be working full-time, but I will have established residency in California by then, and it would be something like $400 per credit (and I'd need 30-33, I think). So, it would be approximately $15,000. Since it's an accredited university and not a University of Phoenix-type thing, I could simply put, for instance:
"B.A. - Temple University
Film and Media Arts major, Business Studies minor
MBA - California State-Dominguez Hills
Do you think that A) it would be worth it in future remuneration and job opportunities; and B) would I be able to work 40-50 hours a week with lots of script reading at home AND be taking 2-3 online college classes at any given time? Will I have no social life? Who here has an MBA? Has anyone taken college courses online, or is anyone taking them currently? Anyone in the entertainment industry have any insights? Thanks in advance.
