I am bitter that I CMI at PSLE and O levels, compared to my ex classmates who now easily hold 2-3 degrees (including MBAs) with actual value and work in well paying jobs

So it's not mutually exclusive

MBAs know their values btw.
Told you already, they hire MBAs to give them a chance. But the MBAs have to go in and prove their worth before asking for more money. It's that simple.

Your MBA, if considered in isolation, is not worth a whole lot, unless it is from a top-ranked business school where employers compete to get the best-of-the-best.

Value, as you learnt in corporate finance class, is a subjective concept, dependent on many factors and assumptions (including the current abysmal state of the economy).

The MBA premium in Asia is simply not there compared to the US. Employers don't want to pay you money simply because you went to biz school. Hope people can come to terms with this. They are willing to make you an offer, but you have to go in and prove your worth before you get a pay rise.

Why would any company pay you 10k right off the bat?

btw, if you're doubting the relevance/credibility of tertiary education what are you doing here being concerned and commenting on DBS' postgraduate program?

The fact of the matter is: Those skills were more prized twenty years ago when not many had an education. These days anyone can learn them easily, even online! The barriers of entry to education have shifted as such.
