Brian, thanks for your response, it's greatly appreciated.
Your suspicion is correct, this is my first role since graduating. However, in my current role I have been selling large complex business/IT solutions at senior board level (typical deals range from $500K to $1.5M) and also have responsibilities for developing and driving strategy/tactical account plans for my larger named customers.
Nevertheless, you are probably correct and I should investigate undertaking an MBA emerging 1.5 years later with more experience and hopefully into a marketplace which will be more buoyant.
May I ask if you are currently working in a Business/Management Consultancy capacity, and if so, what were the steps you took to get into consultancy?
Again, many thanks for your feedback.
