OP it’s a fairly worthless MBA, most outside firms would laugh at something like this on your resume. And be careful completing this if you ever want to apply for a real MBA from a school- those applications ask if you already have an MBA (which you would have to answer yes if you completed EY’s program), and would likely deny your application unless you can provide a very good reason as to why you need 2 MBAs

In the US, it's probably not worth too much since Hult has a notoriously questionable reputation but since its company wide, it's an awesome offering for offices in smaller countries, GDS, etc.

Not sure how it's accretive to them. Doesn't provide much value to the employee outside of the formal education, and I'm not sure it's much of a recruitment benefit for most of their target talent. The draw in my mind is probably more so focused on the accounting and audit side of the house.

Is it accredited?

Hult’s program is, so that should apply here I would think

Do EY folks who complete this MBA get any advantage in terms of career advancement compared to their colleagues who don’t do it? If answer is no, then that answers the questions regarding the worth of this MBA.

No

Speaking as an HBS alum, an MBA for a top 10/20/30 school is wonderful if you can afford the time and money to do it. For everyone else, including many of the 95% of the world’s population who aren’t from the US, this is a great *option*. Even more so during pandemic days when there isn’t much networking taking place at HBS etc. Oh, and one is forcing anyone to do it :)
