Money:  Money is probably the first thing that comes to mind as a reason to become more educated.  Sadly, in today’s economic situation money is the least likely reward for obtaining a graduate degree.

So if money is not the reason then what is?

Promotion: Receiving a promotion at work might be a good reason; if one is even available.  However, most  companies will not give you a promotion simply because you have earned a MBA.

So if more money or a promotion is not the reason to go back to school, then what is?

Personal Goals:  Bingo!  This is my primary reason for going back to school for a MBA.   After much internal debate I decided that obtaining a MBA with a concentration on Information Technology Management would give me the necessary skills to fulfill my Personal Goals, which I will detail at a later time.
