List these pseudo-courses on my resume - next to my fancy real degrees?

Looking to get up-and-out of my current private-sector scientist position, I've been rewriting my resume to target more senior science jobs with more of a management or strategic character to them. Obviously I've been playing up every relevant aspect of my experience on my submissions, but what I don't have is an MBA. Some of my competitors for these jobs probably do - in addition to their science PhD. I've sort-of taken a few business courses* over the years, though. Better than nothing? Should I list them on my resume? How to word it? [more inside]

Ideas for optimizing my time at social events I have to attend?

I'm at business school, and we have regular social functions, mainly happy hours, promoted by the school with the aim of expanding our networks. It's not like I'm bad at them. I'm actually pretty sociable. But I'm there for a reason, and I wouldn't be there if I had a choice. Can anyone suggest ways to optimize this socialization time, for example, exercises I might practice at these events to be more witty, funny or charming? Thanks! [more inside]

What kind of jobs are uniquely tailored to a JD/MBA?

What kind of jobs are open only to a JD/MBA, or would be likely to express a strong preference to someone with both degrees? I have a general idea, but I'm looking for specific examples so I could justify (or, if there are few/no examples, forget about) the time & expense of a dual degree (vs. only a JD).

Does a high GMAT score alone mean much?

Earlier this month I applied to the Master in Accountancy program at a state university. I have an excellent bachelor GPA, but it’s from a 3-year math/comp-sci program at a Canadian university. I have been taking intermediate accounting classes from a professional association, trying and failing to find a related job in the meantime. My work history is spotty at best. In short, I knew my chances weren’t good. … until I took the GMAT today and scored 780. What now? [more inside]

How do I sign back up for B-School spam?

A couple years ago, I took the GMAT and thus got subscribed (to be fair, I think I opted in) to get on a bunch of schools' marketing lists. I seem to have fallen off of that list, despite the fact that right now I am starting to seriously look into MBA programs. How do I get back on the "please spam me" list for B-Schools?

Should I borrow $80K to finance my business school education?

Right now, I plan to start business school in the fall. It's a top five program, and in all likelihood, my salary after school will be about twice what I make now. That said, I'll be borrowing about $80K to cover the costs in the short-term. Is this a good idea? I'm excited about b-school in general but perhaps not to the extent that I'm willing to incur a debt that will burden me for decades to come.
