Many professionals decide to pursue their Master of Business Administration (MBA) part-time to maintain their salary and career trajectory. This is a great opportunity to advance your skills, but it requires careful consideration. Follow this advice if you are a chemical engineer considering earning a part-time MBA.

Have a purpose. When I started to think about graduate school, the one question that everyone asked me was: What do you want to get out of it? You could get an MBA to advance in your current career or switch industries. Whatever the reason, it is important to have a purpose, which will help you to pick a school, get the most out of the program, and sustain you through tough times.

In addition, you will be spending a lot of time and money on earning this degree, and you do not want those precious resources to be wasted. A part-time MBA program can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000, and take from two to five years to complete.
