The MBA Thread

So having given my GMAT just today, I thought I would see what the general consensus was on further studies and more specifically the MBA.

Personally, I find education to be more informative in terms of networking and experiences rather than the studying you do in the classroom which is where a lot of the MBA programs shine (the HBS Case Study method).

However, it is an expensive prospect with more universities charging in the $100k range.

Does anybody find it a valuable "investment"? Any other thoughts?

Re: The MBA Thread

It's definitely a very good investment if you go to a top school.
Also, I would get a few years of good work experience where you are progressing well, then attend a top MBA school if possible. Should give you some great opportunities coming out.

Re: The MBA Thread

Like you said, it is more about the connections you make than the actual learning in the class.

If you can afford it, definitely go for it
