Hi all, European living in the Netherlands here. I’ve been doubting whether an MBA would be of any benefit for me, hopefully you could help me in this respect. Below my situation:

LLM (JD) in Tax Law / 8+YoE @ Deloitte / Currently working at a mega US Multinational/ Want to climb to upper management level (two/three levels below C-suite) in the coming 5 years.

MBA would perhaps be good for my personal experience but worry that i could spend my time better at performing at my job.

They put freelancers in HIGH RISK positions asking for full-time commitment and then not following through on payments & promised/contracted hours—costing freelancers a HUGE opportunity cost. If you're okay with getting stringed along and putting in PT hours when it benefits them then go for it. They do not respect and value freelancers. Do not trust a word they say. They put me in a state of unknown and financial insecurity.
