As of now, I am pursuing a degree in math with my concentration being mostly on the applied side. I got into a grad level differential equations course over the summer and got an A. That being said, I am playing with the idea of a PhD in Applied Math but there's one problem. At this point, I'm pretty burned out. I love math, but I'm afraid that if I make it my job, I'll start to hate it. Would getting an MBA and climbing the corporate ladder instead be a terrible idea? I figure that way I can still make it a hobby. Thanks for any and all input
