An MBA is only worth the expense, time, and effort when the graduate plans to work in a business-related field, in management, or as a company founder. For those working in other industries, unless they are in management or leadership roles, an MBA may not be useful. Moreover, not all MBA degrees MBA Exams are created equal.

Just a bragging rights.
Looks nice on resume.

Just like any other degree or cert.

Depends, MBA from a M7? Probably worth it. Especially Harvard/Stanford/Wharton.

MBA from local uni? Depends on your career progression and goals. But you'd most likely be better served going overseas or INSEAD.

When you get down to SIM MBAs (DL edition), it gets pretty laughable. I wouldn't wipe my butt with one of those lol

Graduated in 2018. A joint degree between SMU and a top Europe business school.

Total cost about 100k

Changed 2 jobs since. Salary from 10k to 16k.

But having said that no one has brought up my MBA during intv. I think it might have help
during the shortlisting?

Knowledge wise yes. More business savvy for sure. Network is debatable. Hasn't got the need for it yet. But I'm sure it'll help in the long run.

Although I didn't get to go to Stanford for my MBA. This helped me understand how's life at Stanford.
