I can make 200k without the MBA. I'm trying to point my finger at positions other than C-Level that get to that figure but can't. What is the value of a MBA if you don't use it to get a higher salary or better yourself? I would likely get the same experience and knowledge from staying at my job.

- Deloitte dRDn10Same. I got my MBA to get a salary jump and brand myself for future c-suite roles. If you're already hitting $200k no point. But if you can afford to go, it's the funniest and most amazing experience of your life
- Let me put it this way - you're getting a lot of opinions in here and everyone is right in their own way. The MBA experience will be what you make of it. There were many in the program concerned about their GPA and having a paper degree. The truly dynamic people were there soaking up the resources, learning a crap ton, engaging with hotshots in different industries, winning case competitions, and fostering their abilities and leadership skills. I got ALOT out of it. I can't say the same for about 80% of my class. If you're a loser when you go in, you're not gonna be a badass coming out. You have to make it your own experience. Pick the school based on their legacy - what are they focused on? Are they innovating? You want to come out being clearly differentiated from your competitors. Nothing will magically make you baller. Go in with the intention that you are going to consume more value than others.
- Depends where you get your MBA. I got mine for a fresh network and looking into what the phds were doing.
