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.

Deciding between Insead and oxford mba . Constantly hearing that INSEAD is a tier 1 school where Oxford is second tier . After speaking with alumni , seems like Insead alum are the most passionate too . Living in Singapore and France is a huge plus . Oxford has prestige and is more than just a business school. Their social / ethical take on mba seems to resonate with me a lot more . The alumni seem to choose career paths similar to fields of what I want to do .

Hi! So I received an email from the EY lawyers. They said they have received the notice of approval of my PERM labor certification (ETA form 9089) from the US DOL. And that my priority date is 11/6/2021 in a EB2 visa category. They also told me they submitted my I-140 petition to the USCIS. I just wanted to know how much longer it will take to get my green card. I asked when they will submit the I-485 application and they told me I need to wait to make manager (October 2021)
