Since getting out of college a couple years ago, I have been employed as
an interaction designer at a software company. I really love the work,
it's what I want to be doing for years to come, however I have noticed
(as many people have discussed on this board numerous times) a
disconnect between the business, development and design. Lately, I have
been thinking about applying to business school, hopefully to gain
perspective and help address this gap between all parties.
I would like to get any of your opinions on whether this move would be
successful or not. I definitely want to stay in the design business.
However I am interested in learning more about the business side and how
the worlds can work together better, and getting an MBA to further a
career in design/design management.
I would be interested in anyone who has gone the same route (design
professional who has gone to business school) and whether that
experience has worked out for you or whether you found it not very
beneficial. Have you found that an MBA does/doesn't help your career?
