dmk395 - I give vocational and educational advise everyday for a living. Not too many years ago, the conventional wisdom was that the more education = the more marketable you are. An MBA was big bucks. In the last few years, this idea has been turned upside down. Many companies want technical skills - not generalists. Unless you graduated MBA from Harvard or similar school, the salary generally did not justify the extra time/expense. Many MBAs wound up with jobs they could gotten with a bachelor degree or in a field unrelated to their specialization in Business. However, with our current economic state of affairs, it is really hard to make sense of what is happening and even harder to predict even near future hiring trends. My best advise - do what you think will please you best.
if it ain't broke, don't fix it
