Some home-truths about MBA that I got today & thought it could be of use to many on the Forum.
Why an MBA Is a Waste of Time and Money | BNET
I think this applies to not just an MBA, but to any tertiary/additional Degree one aspires for.

How true what Sastry has said. I know of people at 90 who have done their PhD. 91-year-old war veteran becomes oldest person to collect PhD from Cambridge University | Mail Online
Studying anything at any age is not a waste of time.

Hello Simhan/Sastry,
That's exactly the point--that the Article/blog tries to make.
If the focus is on how MBAs can assist careers taking-off, not many may benefit per se.
And I think Sastry hit the bull's eye when he said: It is all how one uses it. This applies to each & every skill/article/knowledge in life I guess.
So if the focus is on understanding better of one's own pre-MBA experience, it does give benefits [could be one reason why we have quotas for experienced managers to do MBA in many Univs, along with the freshers].
Like the old saying goes: Learning begins with birth & ends with death--it's a life-long process. There's no escaping from it :-)
And HE doesn't give any degrees when we go up there I guess :-)
