Hello all, what do you think about pursuing an MBA to get into economic development work? Are there any MBA programs that have this focus. I'm not saying international development, but local economic development. Do you think an MBA is too focused on organizations and not on the built community to be useful? Or could it be useful in terms of consulting a city on attracting business/improving revenue?

I've also considered joint degree options, but I think they are few and far between in the Philadelphia area. I'd rather do one or another anyway.
