It does not get its value most of the time. Only on certain occasion where the job requires MBA as qualification you may get a little preference but salary will depend on your current salary so not much advantage there. But yes if you do your MBA from a tier 1 college the kind of jobs you get are business centric and with higher pay band so non MBAs mostly don't qualify.

Totally agreed. Even big4 use to hire MBA candidates just to show the clients where MBA candidates get less salary or same as compared to non-MBA candidates.
