No interest in IB/MBB/PE/VC but I love learning and school, and would love to learn from some of the best professors as one day I want to teach as well. Getting M15 MBA still justifiable?

@OP Totally fine imo. The schools care about what’s the likelihood you can do, as alum, post-graduate, for them aka show up nicely on a stat sheet. Sheer pursuits of excellence/learning is a legit reason provided you have the means to do it. Also you can fulfill that “getting employed within 90 days of graduation” guideline.

I’ll keep that in mind! In your opinion, do you think that would change if I was looking to teach at a lower tier school? Honestly, I’d prefer not to teach M15/Top Undergrad because I think I could have a larger impact on my students otherwise.

No, not worth it. An MBA doesn’t mean anything for teaching. Either a PhD or great career success is what’s going to get you in that lecturer door.
