Graduate School

Post by enzojavier » Fri Nov 07, 2014 12:27 am

Hello,

I'm fairly new to SAP.. Maybe 5 years of MM Implementation and Support experience. I'd like to know from you guys if it's okay to get continuing education like an MBA or a masters degree, say, industrial engineering or just to stick with SAP knowledge and experience. I'm aiming to be a SAP consultant in the future. I'd like to know what you guys think, especially those with years of experience in our field.

If you want to do SAP then stick to SAP, if you want to do roles that have SAP as a component then by all means continue education in different areas.

If you have the option, I'd go for the MBA. You can always do SAP consulting after that.
I even had an ABAP colleague who made his MBA whilst working (perm employment).

Keep in mind that Consulting becomes real old, real fast and if you get married with kids, your wife will be pestering you about all the travel and shit.

To be on the safe side once you hit the late 30's, the MBA might come in real handy. Even if you stay in IT and SAP, but want a perm career.

Considering that anyone with 3 years typing experience on a computer is already a senior consultant, I wouldn't choose that route ever again, but that's my opinion. You have a lot of crap to compete against.

This morning on my way to work I saw a guy with a sign that said "The End is Near" So why bother with any of it?
In my opinion, Pepper Spray is underutilized as an effective tool for scope control
