Creatives in the Corporate World
I have a background in a creative field, Interior Architecture, and I am looking to combine it with an MBA in order to move forward with my career in a holistic manner. Are there any programs that focus on the creative approach to business I should check out? Considering focusing on corporate space and strategy.
- Eric Allen expert It's a good question. The program that really comes to mind would be Kellogg's MMM program. It's focused on candidates who want to get into the technology field by way of design and/or product management, but something for you to consider. Honestly, you don't have to go to a specific program to leverage your creative mind - it's has a lot more to do with the school you pick and the career you choose. In terms of schools, I might look for programs that have a fair amount of flexibility in course offerings where you can perhaps take courses outside of the MBA program in other fields. Also, if you're interested in certain industries, you certainly want to consider the location of your MBA program - i.e. NY, Paris, LA, SF, could have certain benefits depending on you what you want to do. I hope that helps!
