MsLovelyTae :  I’m not 100% in your exact situation but I so know what it feels like to be intellectually unchallenged. Ironically, it’s so draining to be bored and disengaged at work. 

You could totally use your MBA as a way to reset and find what you are truly passionate about! I myself studied for and obtained a certification as a way to motivate myself and push myself into a different field. For you it’s even better because it’s a whole other degree! You can do it!

I would stay while you finish your degree – a new job (and boss) may not be so accommodating to your busy schedule. Can you have a frank discussion with your boss about how you’re feeling? I have regular sit-downs with my supervisor where he asks how I’m doing, are you challenged enough, and so on. 

I think this kind of funk at work is pretty common, several of my friends (and I) have gone through it. As a cautionary tale though, one of my former co-workers left 6 months ago for what he thought was a great opportunity and he ended up miserable, bullied and despised at his new job. He quit because he couldn’t stand it and is now looking to come back to his old dept/company. It can’t hurt to look and see what’s out there but just remember that the grass isn’t always greener.

Have you talked to your boss about taking on more challenging projects? It could help while you finish up your degree! Taking on a new position while trying to finish an MBA is alot!
