#099: Monday Memo: Get an MBA or run your own business, what’s better for Finance professionals?

Andrew Codd

I recorded a podcast this week with a senior finance professional who had also ran his own business and it got me thinking that nowadays in most large enterprises finance managers and leaders also supplement their accounting training by undertaking an MBA (Masters of Business and Administration). Interestingly whilst on this course you learn the skills required to run a business successfully, the fact remains that most MBA graduates will not go off and start a business of their own, they instead take up middle to senior finance positions in existing companies.

So what’s a better course of education for a finance professional an MBA or experience of running your own business?

In this bite-sized episode I share some practical thoughts on the value of each.
