My brother has started his MBA january 2011 at the UON. He is working on contract, he has paid his first sem fees, 60k, even done his first CAT's. He recently got another job where he is permanent and paid double. Trouble is he was posted to homa bay. What to do? Advise.

Tell him to sacrifice today for a better tomorrow. He should stick to his current job and continue schooling, i am sure he will get far much better job in future.

MBA is a very small thing nowadays. In future he could be able to pay for it and study it via his mobile phone. Mwambie afanye kazi. Atasoma tu.

If he's able to do classes in Kisumu,well and good but otherwise - he should stick to the job,take advantage of the lower expenses he will have to SAVE & INVEST!!!

He can have most of his classes on Saturdays and wttend them at the Kisumu Campus then travel back to homabay on Sundays. I know os someone who comes to Nairobi all the way from Kisii on Friday nights to attend his classes on saturdays.

Too often we make the mistake of assuming we learn most when pursuing a structured course or earning a certificate.

Is it possible your brother would learn much more from the work in Homa Bay? (money aside)
Do we often forget that learning is a lifetime pursuit? (meaning even if he did his MBA it should not be an end)

If the job in HomaBay is challenging along with utilizing some of what he'd learn in the MBA, I'd say he should go for it.

Let him work. Find out the modalities of doing distance-learning. I know a guy who used to come to nai for lectures n exams over the weekend. Again, he will not suffer traffic jam like his colleagues and could even cover more ground!

If he can afford to do it, he should delay the gratification that the double salary could bring and stick to his studies. It could pay off handsomely later. I did this and have never regretted it. With a better job after my studies, I was able to achieve much more than I think I would if I had not done the studies. I would vouch for it to anyone who can afford it.

Would say go for the money especially if it coupled with better work experience....at least he has his undergraduate...for MBA to really work it must be coupled with mature experience, MBA without experience counts for nothing....he can always do distance learning with UNISA..

I'd say, wacha afanye kazi.... he can juggle the two.... Experience is very important... Hii MBA can be done anytime... besides, he has the kisumu campus... plus, the way technology is developing, even UON will have online/distance learning soon....

I agree with the afanye kazi school.
The irony of it is that people go to school for additional degrees so that they can get better paying jobs. And then of course there is the question whether this MBA will automatically guarantee him a job...Experience counts for more than these papers. Let him weigh his personal circumstances and decide works for him.

He should NOT defer studies, laziness will creep in, but find a way to study while at HomaBay.

KU had distant learning, if UON offers the same, he is safe.
if it does not, ther are two things involved, either defer, or job.
if chooses the job, there are two things involved, he can learn part time, or stop learning.
if he learns part time, there are two things involved,

If training is useful to him, then let him finish his studies.
I left the university at one time, I did not regret it, so much work and without education. But I know that many are lost after leaving the university and cannot find their place. Here you need to think carefully and make a decision that will satisfy all the needs.
