Im looking into getting an MBA/PhD in Business and need some advice?
I am graduating this Spring with a Bachelor in Business Management with a good GPA of 3.9. I am looking into becoming a college professor.I know that it is necessary to have a masters degree to teach in a 2 year college and a PhD in a 4 year university.
