Though I have a family lineage in both the mining and finance industries, my work experience at Banco BMG has offered its own unique challenges. Offering the right financial products to the right consumers takes experience and education. Though many people can find success in the business marketplace without an MBA, I always recommend getting one if you don’t have a lot of business experience already.

Don’t Get Confused

Though you might regularly hear of people that have had no business training, that are doing well in a particular industry; more often than not, if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that they’ve had extensive experience in business or finance; or they have some extraordinary natural skill set or ability.

Therefore, for many potential business professionals, getting an MBA is the best step to take before entering the marketplace. Here’s Forbes list of top Ivy League business programs:
