I was speaking with someone regarding the value of an MBA the other day and the person I was talking to kept using salary figures to point out that an MBA is one of the best degrees for return on investment. While I agree that it is a solid credential, I think that those numbers are somewhat skewed by schools like Harvard, Columbia, UT-Austin, etc. You know the top 100. I then began to wonder, if you have an MBA from a RA school that is relatively an unknown, how is that so much better than a NA school that is a relative unknown? and is an MBA from an unknown school really a good investment? What say you?
