someone with an MBA or worse, several masters... just strike me as they have too much time and no direction in life.

life is not about all these paperwork, if you are in it for the money.

What about buy-side roles? Is it possible to enter the branded buy-side names as a fresh grad?

it's possible but extremely difficult unless you already have an internship at a buy side role and can convert to perm, if that is the answer you want.

I also echo your sentiments regarding paying off MBA fees by yourself, sure makes you feel good and rich lol.

Inb4 an MBA is worth only what you make out of it. But i think it's extremely useful for anyone who wishes to get into management and/or get a huge pay jump in the corporate world.
If you think getting an MBA will automatically get you a high paying job you are going to be sorely dissappinted. I have seen so many local CVs with NTU/NUS MBA applying for $6k p.m. jobs. So many.

Are you sure it is MBA or just Masters in a technical subject (e.g. Masters of Science, Engineering, Aerospace, Data Analytics, Finance, etc.)? Those are different and these can be taken after a bachelor's degree with 0 working experience.

And the intakes of MBAs are small annually, so need to define "many". CVs of Thousands? Hundreds?

But I agree also lah, as well as with others who mentioned in the previous posts, only if you are already in management role/high flyer then it is working taking. If 30 years old still in executive/specialist role and not even as an AM and barely earning 6k PM, err..... Don't expect too much.

$6k/month at 30 years old is considered low?

Poster137 has given his view and I do share his opinion. Here we are discussing about the merits of taking an MBA which currently cost approximately 70k in the big 3 local unis. A candidate not having achieved more than 6k at 30 years of age is not showing any evidence of a potential high flyer. MBA is meant for high achieving executives the objective of which is to provide an advance business education for up and coming professionals.

Henceforth the intake remains low and the admission criteria is skewed towards an applicant's employment track record. gmat score and assessment of his/her potential during am interview rather than the applicant's first degree. The aim of the program is to train future industry leaders.

Hi, Poster137 here. I am graduating soon from a local MBA and am "unfortunately" in the earning barely 6k a month at the age of 30 years old.

In my defense, i was underpaid for a long time and it is really hard to find a high paying job during a recession. So i am hoping that my salary jumps and promotion will come post MBA graduation.

Local MBAs are trash. HYP or INSEAD then can open doors
