The Pointless Global MBA: Take One

0

I finished my MBA in 2010 from Thunderbird School of Global Management. Thunderbird provided the first truly global MBA allowing its students to globetrot while learning all the skills needed to secure a future posh lifestyle. As this is a points/travel blog, I’ll limit my analysis on the value of obtaining an MBA or any other higher level degree citing Lesson 2: A Dollar is Green of my book.

Besides being able to read the balance of my student loan bills, my MBA took me all over the world, planting the seeds for my points addiction. I probably would’ve saved myself a few hundred thousand had I read ThePointsOfLife Infomercial and applied for credit cards instead of graduate schools.

As the point of life is not only travel, I have to say that I don’t regret the collection of letters in my signature box. After all, you know what keeps me warm? That’s right, those degrees. So enough with the cynicism and onto Kanye’s Good Life.
