I’ve gotten a lot of heat about my "don’t get an MBA" post–(Harvard did those guys a favor when they didn’t let them in). Here’s one: Life Beyond Code :: MBA or no MBA??.
Let me make my point in a more MBA-esque sort of way:
What if an MBA cost $2,000,000?
What if an MBA took five years?
Would it would be worth it then? Of course not.
So my question really is: is the marginal value (in terms of opportunity cost, time value of money and capital expenditure) higher or lower than the current cost? I think it’s pretty close to a no brainer.
