Depends on the program. Top 10 ?

Mba is worth it if either 1, you change career paths and or 2, your company pays for it. What do you want to do?

like

A partner once told me to do an Executive MBA once I hit manager (night classes) if I want to make myself more marketable later in my career. The normal MBA path is better if you want to change careers completely

I think you should ask if the company will pay part of it!!

What will you do with the MBA? No use if you’re just return to EY consulting. But if you have something in mind and an MBA helps sure why not

Also f the “top10” mentality. I’m 32 and making over 350+...400+ next year and did not do a top 10 mba. What id say is yes, mba is necessary but network matters 100% more!!!

Only if you want to change your career

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
