    What would your answer be if someone asked you to choose 3 Master's degrees
    that are, in terms of utility and prominence, similar to the MBA?

    Thanks for participating,

    It all depends on the utility and prospective employer recognizing the degree as equivalent to MBA and most of them may not be equivalent but similar in terms of course content to a great extent.

    MS in Management
    Master of Engineering Management
    MS in Business Management
    Master of Management
    Master of International Business Administration

    .. the list goes on

    In manufacturing and service industries the MSQA is an alternative to an MBA. At my last employer there were several hundreds of people with MBAs but less than a hundred with MSQAs.

    If one works for a govt agency, a company doing lots of business with a govt agency, or a not-for-profit organization, then an MPA might be a good alternative.

    The MBA may be the most widely recognized graduate degree after the Ph.D. by the general public.
