Have you ever played snake and ladder? The good MBA would be a ladder where you end up skipping a couple of levels in your career . On the other hand a shitty MBA will leave you with no prospects and a loan that's gonna eat at you at 13% / annum from the moment you switch on your laptop for the first class ( most classes are virtual for now).

yes 100% but only if done from top 10 or at worst top 15

If your plan is to end up as a CEO of some company and work till 60 then yeah, it's worth it. But if you are looking for financial independence and want to retire early, then absolutely not.

D1, It's because the society has taught us that getting a degree is the only way to get success. But if you look at reality, you'll find almost all immensely successful entrepreneurs without an MBA. There is a reason companies like Google or unicorn start-up Cred are open to hiring people without any degree.

I am looking for some advice or opinions to apply for consulting jobs right now. I currently work at a mid-sized/regional firm, but plan move to a different city later this year. I have ~4 yr xp working on system implementations, IT policies/controls, and BPO, but my undergrad GPA wasn't the best (I did become a CPA and CISA though). Should I try to apply to big 3/big 4? Stay mid-sized? Get an MBA or Masters? Move and pray? Thanks in advanced for any comments!
