In my team, half of them are engineers. Other half are grads with finance discipline. No one has a MBA. As the MD puts it, he doesnt have one and doesnt think it necessary to have one in our role.
I agree that mba is not needed from a knowledge perspective, and what u said makes sense for undergrad engineering students. But if u r already working as an engineer for a few yr, hard to see how u can navigate a mid career shift into one of the roles u mentioned above w/o a mba.
