RE: Value of an MBA

I'm based in Los Angeles, and a little over a year ago I left one of the big Hollywood agencies, where I was an assistant in the digital department, to work at a digital media company. This is a fairly standard move - and I really like working in digital media. I like being at the crossroads of entertainment and technology. Eventually, I'd like to move to working in entertainment in Singapore or Hong Kong, or maybe working in the entertainment arm of a management consultancy.

I don't see myself getting promoted at my current job, so I'm trying to soak up as much knowledge and learning there that I can, before I either switch companies or get an MBA.

I'm leaning towards and MBA right now, as I think it would give me an extra tool to use in moving deeper into a more finance/consultant role. Right now, I have experience at the main talent agency in the world, as well as experience at a well respected "name brand" production company. With an MBA, I figure that I would be a natural fit for either a boutique bank aimed at the entertainment industry, or the strategy/finance branch of a studio/network or the entertainment niche at a larger bank. I don't think that kind of career will be open to me without the MBA unfortunately, as they wouldn't look past my lack of finance skill set.

Does anyone have any thoughts? I really appreciate any thing you guys say... let me have it.

I am not that familiar with the digital media/studio/network industry, but I have my MPA (Masters in Professional Accountancy) and I do think that it is beneficial at least in terms of getting your foot in the door in the accounting/finance world. Eventually, the landscape of business will change to basically requiring a bachelor's degree and master's degree in order to work so it's never an idea to get an advanced degree. Just my opinion though. Good luck boss.
