Hello, I'm fresh out of my undergrad (BS in Economics) and am currently working as an English teacher in South Korea for the next year. When I return stateside in November, I hope to be able to get myself in the position for graduate school.
I would like to do international consulting work in the areas of transportation planning and environmental sustainability, although focus is not as important, so long as I can help cities grow in positive, sustainable ways. I'm considering a dual master's program, getting a MBA and a MUP. I feel the MBA would make my skills more transferable and would allow me to build a larger network of potential contacts for work.
What type of employment exists in this area? What exactly could I expect as my job description? Would the MBA/MUP path be a viable (and logical) option to getting into the field? And lastly, what kind of salary would I see starting out?
