Is 37 too old to go get my MBA?
So I’m thinking about upgrading my life. I graduated many years ago with my Undergraduate Degree from a great school. Wound up in a decent job but I feel stuck in life. I paid off my Student Loans and I live an ok life. Wife left me last year and getting tired of my job and life. I put in a ton of work and at first I got several promotions then things stopped. I feel stuck. Should I go get my MBA? I’m 37 with no kids, and no wife. The starting salaries look impressive for MBAs and I could get into a great program as I graduated with a 4.0 in my UG degree.

No, it's a little late, but if you do an accelerated program in like 1.5 years, you will be in good shape.

 Quoting: NeoWolf


I did one. Cost me $60,000. Took me 15 years to pay off. During the payoff I started a business that I later sold for $250,000 and made $2 million from before selling out. Could I have created that business without the mba? Possibly. But it helped. More education puts you in a different mental state and gives you confidence. But right now might not a good time. I’d think on it for another year. We are in crazy times. The proposed student loan debt forgiveness may not materialize or it may not be for republicans, whites, christians, or for recent debts. Its a crap shoot.

No, it's never too late. I finished my MA at the age of 38. My daughter was in college at the time and we would proof read each other's papers.

MBAs take what, two years? So you’ll be 39-40. Age of retirement is late 60s... you’ll have 20 years working in a job that pays very well.

Go for it.

I did it at 37. Got into the Columbia Executive MBA program. Really upgraded my life. Made a ton of new friends, new career. Incredible experience. Highly recommend you do it. I'm 45 now. 37 is young.

Too Old? Nonsense. With that sort of limited thinking, especially regarding your own potential, you'll only stay stuck. You should go for it! Best wishes to you!

I totally agree with you that it is never too late -especially for this puppy!


but MBA -

unsure if that should be your first choice OP. Things are so uncertain now.

do you have a specific area you would like to work in?

This^^^ enjoy your youth. Don't chain yourself to school and a career. You already did that and you feel stuck, so why would doing more of the same get you unstuck?

Sell everything, go where the wind takes you, live for more than working at a job and paying the bills.

The world is waiting for you.

Don't feed the machine. Unless it makes you happy, i guess.
