Is an MBA really worth it?

What does an online MBA look like in terms of class time, work load, realistic time to complete etc?

It depends on your career goals.

Also, not all are created equally and there are big differences between in person, all online, executive, etc. in terms of time/effort/experience

It depends. MBA could be an edge when you are trying to apply for a role or aiming for a promotion. But I think it's not really that worth it if you want to negotiate for a raise.

If you are someone who aims for career advancement and would like to increase chances for bigger opportunities, then getting an MBA is a big help. But not having one doesn't mean that you will not go places. At the end of the day, it's always about values, experience and determination.

At my company, I recently learned that the salary ranges are in part dependent on someone's education. Meaning that someone in my role with a Bachelor's degree will start out with significantly less than someone with a Master's just because that is the way they compute the "objective" salary ranges. Not sure if you can find out if that's the case by you but if your company pays for advanced education and you end up getting a bump in your salary, it seems worth it to me.

It all depends on the objective! If you want to pivot industries, yes MBA. If you want more money, then go to Top twenty school and go to an external company. Networking and relationships are better than an MBA. But with an MBA you can do both!

That all depends on your career goals and plans for the future. Sometimes it can help you negotaite a higher salary and sometimes it doesn't really matter.

Most likely is not worth especially if you work in Sales

My personal opinion is that it doesn't really matter for sales, but it's a nice addition to the resume. I would consider what kind of debt you're putting on to do it though and whether it's worth it

Slalom Consulting or UBS Group Internal Consulting? I received offers from both and need to make a decision soon.

Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.

Or… should I take a small loan?
