I have ten years of experience and want to pursue an mba to get to the next level in my career. Does it matter where I get my MBA? I’ll have to do it online. I am not looking to switch industries. Work in tech.

Are you looking to grow in your company or relaunch your career.

If this is a check the box to signal your current employers or people who want your 10 years + MBA, then it may not matter much. Just avoid University of Phoenix.

If you want to relaunch your career, go towards a higher caliber, or work as a consultant then target a great school.

BU’s program from what I recall is incredibly cheap for the value but isn’t as strong of a business school. Go for any of these programs and it’ll be a solid ROI.

MBA programs are winner take all. The difference between a program ranked 1-2 vs 5 vs 10 is immense. Get out of the top 20, and you will never make CEO.

Go to a top 20.

For tech, I do see an MBA from top programs at certain companies have more clout. it also depends on what titles or roles you are shooting for.

I'd say check out the MAANG companies and see who mid to high level execs where they get their MBAs. If that's what you want to follow, then try for those schools that have an online program.

I'm from a Top 75 or so MBA program and in tech, and I've been getting a lot of recruiter emails/calls. I got mine in-person but we have a robust online MBA program.

Also, depending on where you are in your career and role, you might not need an MBA but an exec certificate from Stanford or Harvard.

The HP direct supervisors I had all earned a Stanford Innovation Strategy cert in the '90s (probably paid for by HP).

Hi fishes,

This annual appraisal I have got a good % of appraisal increment on my salary but I was not promoted to a senior developer (although I have been mentoring a junior dev in my team and been part of building the project by implementing new technologies and tweaks) and my total YoE is 3.5+ years. What could be the reasons? What should I do now?

Thanks in advance!!
