Is there life after getting your MBA?

Let Alexa Portales tell her story: “After getting my MBA I quickly rose to a senior management position at my company in Paris. I enjoyed the stimulation and challenge, but eventually felt that my intellectual horizon was beginning to narrow. So I did some research, and discovered that a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) looked like a viable way for me to expand my capabilities and challenge myself.”

She took five years off from her career to attend the Grenoble Ecole de Management in Switzerland, and now works as an organizational change consultant.

Her conclusion about the DBA is that if you want to gain deep and specialized knowledge of the business world, or wish to teach about it at the University level, then you should definitely purse a DBA.
