It depends what you hope to gain out of an MBA. If you are in it for the connections then it is worth it.

I didn't get to finish my MBA because it was expensive! I do have units so I think that's enough to get a better job.

I don't think so. I have read somewhere that people who got MBAs were till unemployed.

Not entirely. Nowadays, companies hire based on experience anyway so you'll keep paying and paying for additional qualifications but ultimately end up at the back of the employment line

Yes. Investing in yourself and your education is always a good idea, nobody can take it away from you and it sets you apart from the pack

Having an MBA can definitely improve your earnings. There will be more jobs and career advancement opportunities if you have an MBA. The expensive tuition will eventually pay off.

It's hard to say. I know a lot of people with high paying jobs who didn't have an MBA degree but still have good businesses. I, however, am an MBA graduate and I did learn a couple of things in school that helped me with my business today.

Yes! If you are going to get into business then getting an MBA is very important. You'll know how the market works and how to manage a business.

No, I think if you know the basics the MBA would not be for you unless you hold a high executive position.

IMO, I don't think so. It's more money to shell out for something I think you can learn on the job.

I always believe in the goodness of having a degree or an education. The more you learn, the more opportunities that will knock on your door.

MBAs help professionals enhance their career opportunities, receive increased compensation and job promotions. Also, an MBA can provide the skills and knowledge necessary to start a new business. Many employers require an MBA for certain management or leadership positions so they're definitely worth it.

I think an MBA degree doesn't give a person as high of a status as before so it might not be worth it. I guess, unless the job you are eyeing for requires an MBA degree at a minimum.
