2. Specific Training: getting an MBA in order to reap financial or marketing training that can be achieved faster and more effectively using other programs.

3. Figure out one’s life: yes, MBA is a break for 20 months but it is a terrible reason if all you want to do is figure out your personal life and goals. Everyone will be doing some soul-searching during the program but nobody likes a confused person without goals or purpose.
