I am currently working in the human resources department of a hospital and I am also working towards my MBA in healthcare administration. Recently, several people have mentioned to me that my degree will not amount to much; that they will choose someone with experience over someone with an MBA every time. My concern is that I am wasting my time and money by working towards a degree that will not help my career. Does anyone have any advice- should I continue to pursue my MBA or should I focus on gaining more experience?
I would greatly appreciate any advice.
