    Waste of time, unless you’re executive material. In which case you don’t need an mba.

      MBA will help you connect to higher level people. How to use that you’ll have to learn

      Only top 10 mba schools worth it.

      I would say only top 5 is worth it.

      Yep, I'm on one of such programs. Don't know what Intel contribution you are referring to though

    The thing I would be concerned about would be the cost of a top 10 MBA. Half a million or more between tuition and 2 years of lost earnings.

    MBA can teach you accounting and maybe how to invest if the program is good. But that is not worth $200k. Take a few courses online.

    MBA is mainly for building up/expanding your network: Establishing commeraderie with potential business partners or people who’ll will help you reach opportunities is priceless. Do it just for that. Having a nice arsenal of connections in various industries goes a long way. If you don’t think that’s important or see any use in you’re career which I doubt, do not do it.
