TITLE RE: I can’t get a job..

CONTENTS I will assume that you have majored in “business administration” for your undergrad. degree, since you asked specifically about a MBA program.  First things first, valuable, asset-cumulative, real work experience will beat any top-notch MBA program. However, if you’ve been having trouble getting a job (and be rest assured, you’re not alone), it’s not a bad idea to undergo an MBA program, especially when the economy was at its worst in the first few years of the 21st century.  However, now that so many analysts and trends indicate that the economy is recovering, perhaps it’s not the best time.  Furthermore, it is true that the number of MBA applicants are increasing at an alarming rate, however unless you enroll in a top 20 MBA program, the program-to-rewards ratio is not very advantageous (this is not to undermine any other current MBA students or alumni, but rather to simplify a depiction of how the top industry employers consider an MBA degree at this point).  In short, an MBA program, especially a very prestigious one, has its rewards, especially if you have less than, lets say, 3 or 4 years of work experience, and the degree can definitely put you ahead of the game, but it’s only temporary.  Understand, maintaining your results and having a clean work ethic at your organization, will lead you to higher routes.
