Last week I met with up with my friend Kajsa Hartig that works as a Digital Navigator at Nordiska Museet in Stockholm. We had been trying to link up and visit the Swedish National Museum that is going to be remodeled and had an exhibition that highlighted a large interactive touch screen based exhibition about the remodel of the museum (we thought).
When I was applying to one particular job at a UX form in Stockholm the issue of my MBA came up in the interview. ' How is your MBA useful in the UX area ?' they asked.
Now, I had never given this much thought and had seriously considered removing the MBA from my CV but my pride (and all the hours I put into to it) forced me to leave it on. Usually I just didn't mention it much.
I don't remember what I answered exactly, but it centered around strategy and analysis…..or something. As I remember it could have been a better answer.
