If can achieve that great, you are the top 0.1% in the world (99.9th percentile). For me, top 5% can liao. Let the cream of the crop buy a Rolls Royce or Ferrari, I'm contented if I can afford a new Aston Martin or Porsche.
Insead is not abt the school fees but the barrier of entry.
To enter one must be great. So employers look at that.

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.

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.

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.
