I earned my MBA while married with two young children and while moving to a new city for a new job. It’s manageable. The experience is enjoyable, and it goes by very quickly. In fact, I missed interacting with my classmates when the Physician MBA was over. It was worth every penny because you gain a new skill set and executives look at you differently. It was money and time well spent.
