MBA or MSc

 
#1 MBA or MSc
28/10/2002 00:00

Pete Harwood

I have been acting as an internal business analyst/consultant for the past 13 years in areas such as BPR, O&M, TQM, Change Management, MI and Systems Analysis but ultimately would like to become independent (either working as a freelancer or for a Consulting organisation). I hold the Institute of Management Services diploma (work study, O&M, etc)and the Chartered Management Institute diploma but do not feel that these would be attractive enough for potential clients or employers. I have the choice to pursue a quick route MBA (Exec Diploma in Strat Management + research module and dissertation) or an MSc in Organisational Change and Consultancy at Sheffield Hallam University. Either way, I will be attempting the IMC CMC in parallel. What qualification is regarded the highest in Consulting ? I believe the MSc is more appropiate but the MBA appears to be the more favoured. Suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.

Hi, my response does not pertain to your question. However, I am starting up a consultancy business in the area of purchasing & supply management as an independant/freelancer.

I think there is a possibility of join hands in order to establish a good consultancy. Please advise your interest.

Hi Pete, I agree with your comments about the MSc vs the MBA and am facing a similar dilemma. I have 14 years experience as a business analyst / project manager / consultant. I am currently a self employed consultant.

My prefence would be to choose an MSc (a specialist degree), but the market definately favours the MBA, especially from a top school. My feelings are that an MBA is still a general degree and usually undertaken after specialising in one area of study.

I think you need to decide what you want to do first. Which kind of company and industry you want to market yourself (for example investment banks prefer MBA's, engineering firms may prefer MSc's). Which kind of consulting organisation you may want to join and in what capacity (different roles require different skills and academic qualifications). What area of speciality you want your career path to go?

Good luck with your choice.

I have just completed an MBA course at one of the Universities in the Midlands in the UK and what I can comment on your issue is that an MBA would be asure way to go forward because the modules studied at this level take care of all issues involved in today's business. With your role as a Consultant you will only limit yourself in one area of business if you choose to study an MSc in a specific area of business. Imagine already after you presented your case, someone is offering you an opportunity in an area different from Organisational Change. An MBA will surely be the right way to go while you study for another higher professional qualification in your area of specification like CIPD, IMC, CMC - you may even get some exemptions if you will study MBA. I am also planning to establish a Consultancy firm specialising in HRM. Good luck mate!
