I have the same question and I believe a MS with a business component is the way to go.

And what’s up with the ellipses? Was a full stop not good enough? Was that put there to be an insult because over text that’s how it’s perceived.

MBA program transforms an individual, giving them a better UX in terms of communication, critical thinking and interpersonal approach. This would put MBA’s at an advantage over MS.

I have an MBA and trust me, I can have smarter conversations with clients now. I started with strategy for financial services and now I am doing digital marketing strategy for auto. It does add value. Make sure you chose your school well, those rankings are made up numbers for us news, Bloomberg, Economist, etc to make money. Look at employment reports instead (make sure you read them well, they could be deceiving too-like schools hide sponsored students and show high salaries but with smaller 3 month graduate employment)

There's no arcane secret to having smart conversations on unfamiliar topics that's only taught within business school walls. It really isn't rocket science and definitely not worth going into humongous debt for. The more intangible benefits of brand and network may be worth the cost. Conversation skills? Definitely not; those you learn by reading and actually having conversations.

Depends on the MS and MBA. A top MBA>a top MS, but an average MBA<average MS. Also depends on what your MS is in- one in Information Technology will yield different results than one in literature

Depends on the country you are in and it depends which job you are going for. I need more details to make a call here :)

I don't like MBAs huge waste of time and money. Specially for smart people who can learn on the go and are intellectually curious.
