For someone who has a sub-par undergrad GPA and is not particularly skilled at math/arithmetic (I know Math isn’t the core skill set but it is important in scoring well on the GMAT /Courses) , is it worth it for me to try to get into a above average MBA program? For me personally it’s either a good program or bust because it is a serious financial commitment. I currently work as a sales professional at a leading cybersecurity company so I think that may serve to my benefit. Thoughts?

First question, is what do you want to do and will an MBA help you get there

Ideally (eventually) a strategy sales position such as VP of sales, VP of Go To market, Product Marketing Manager, Or a District Manager that leads a team of Account Executives in a geographical area, etc. So this is where I see an MBA providing tons of value seeing as how my undergrad degree was not in business so I would have a lot to learn and actually be interested in growing professionally.
