What do hiring managers care about more MBAs or experience…both is not an acceptable answer.

If the hiring manager themselves don’t have a Master’s degree, chances are higher that they do not believe in an MBA. They may only put heavy focus on experience, regardless of an MBA degree. Just my two cents!

If you got more than 5-7 years of experience I don't even care or look at your education if it's older than that. Granted got a hiring manager but I do plenty of hiring interviews and give verdict ya/nay and what level

Depends on the mba

The better question is, does it? And yes, it does.

I have a top 5 MBA and favor experience over the degree when I’m hiring - but also depends on the role and the context. Like someone said, did they work 2 years and get a respectable MBA with great grades or do they have 4 years of experience and a decent MBA…

Depends on the role and company culture... That said, usually the experience gets you the job. The education gets you the pay. Many compensation and rewards packages are contingent on buckets of experience and education. The degree automatically moves you into a higher bracket. Experience may not.

Depends, unless you are going into specific business, you are limiting your income by going from undergrad to MBA without experience in between

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
