As good as this may seem, there is another consideration I need to consider and that is time. If I go full-time, I can complete the program in two years, if I work full-time and go to school part-time, then the program will take three years to complete. I think all things considered I would accept the position to work full time and seek a non-top 50 online MBA program like Portland State University at a tuition cost of $47,725 (WB3, BS, I25). I can utilize the $44,438 (WB3, BS, L23) in savings between what I would have spent on my MBA at University of Washington and allow this savings to continue to mature within the savings bonds.In the job offer, I was given a choice take a $5,000 bonus or receive 100 shares of company stock at a public offering of $50.00 per share. If I take the $5,000 cash and invest it in an account paying 5 percent interest compounded annually for ten years my future value of the investment will be 8,144.47 (WB3, BS, I35). Now, if I took the 100 shares at $50.00, I would need the price of the stock to increase in value to about $82.00 per share within a ten year period to achieve the same amount of return on my cash investment. While this is possible, I would feel more confident in my return on investment at 5 percent than I would be hoping for a stock price jump of $32 per share. If we took a company like Microsoft and industry leader in the Windows operating system for home and business, their stock price in November 2011 was $25.58, and as of October 2016, the company’s stock price has risen to $57.64 per share. While this increase does meet my $32 per share growth need and a 44.37 percent return on investment, the company I am considering the job offer from is not registered as required by the Securities Act of 1933. By not being registered I do not see how the stock offering will be of benefit to my investment needs.
