As a Chef, it's not very frequent that people go for an MBA, but the things are changing now. In this diversified world and inter disciplinary forms of education encourages different professions to gor an MBA and help to grow in their careers or even change their careers in one way or the other. Below are the list of paths that you can choose after an MBA and relevance of doing MBA to get to those paths:

1. If you want to grow and excel as a Chef, there are new MBA programs specifically designed for hotel management students. Although such programs are not yet available in India but you will find them soon. In countries like USA and UK, they have already launched MBA in food and beverage, and similar other fields for Chefs and other kitchen staff. Such programs will help you understand the technical aspects of food and how to come up with innovative ideas.

2. If you are looking to work independently, again MBA can be a good option. It will require good business skills and the essentials of dealing in today's business scenario. An MBA degree will help you in building those skills.

3. If you are planning to open your own restaurant or hotel and you simply want to manage it, MBA will help you a lot in this case. The kind of leadership or management skills that you will learn in MBA will add value to your skill set and increase the probability of your success.

4. Even if you are leaving the job of the Chef and want to shift to some other job, MBA would be of great help. It can happen with certain people that they are not able to carry on with the same profession. In this case you can identify your interest and go for that particular field in MBA.

Therefore, the idea of MBA is good if you are seriously considering it. However please keep in mind that there is no better teacher than kitchen for any Chef. If you can continue with your work, nothing can stop you from becoming an expert. But if you want to take a break, and gain some value in the mean time - MBA is for you.
