I am engineer in the IT industry and have a decade of full time work experience. Over the past few months I have been debating(basically with myself) whether to pursue a MBA degree or not. I came to the conclusion that its better to do it than not. I am not in a position to leave my job to do a full time course and since I am considering moving to another country maybe in the next 1.5 years committing to an executive MBA degree also seems unrealistic. I am living and working in Barcelona now but thinking of moving to the UK or go back to my home country in the future.
Naturally I am considering doing an Online MBA. But after checking around and talking to people(many who've done a full time mba) there's just not a lot of information out there on the return of investment for an Online MBA degree. Even colleges don't exactly put out such statistics. Many online MBA 's have some really eyewatering fees and makes me wonder if its worth the cost.
How is it valued and viewed by potential employers?
Is it worth spending, for example 70-80k eur, when I know that I would have a to take a student loan to pay 80-90% of the fees?
Looking forward to hear from all of you.
