Shouldn’t I choose an M.B.A. that specializes in my current career industry?

The problem with specializing your M.B.A. is that you never know what the future may hold for you. Many people living in the United States change jobs roughly every five years. By choosing a specific M.B.A. such as Health Services Management, Supply-Chain, or Accounting, you may find your M.B.A. is no longer relevant or limits your career options. An M.B.A. degree in management can easily transition into any career or industry because management is universal.
