I'll be interning as a Program Manager this summer. During my interview loop, I noticed that one of my interviewers had an MBA. This is considered a "technical" management role, and I hadn't realized that people in this position commonly got MBAs.
Is an MBA valuable for furthering one's career? What are the benefits of getting an MBA as a Project Manager and is it worthwhile for this position?
For example, if you were already a Project Manager at a good company, would it be worth taking a break to pursue an MBA at a top ten school?
