I thought I would post this here since I found the advice very helpful and enlightening - it also has some credibility, since Marc Andreeson is one of those Silicon Valley Midas men. I've found his blog to be a must read for anyone that wants to live and work in the Tech/VC fields. Here's his Guide to Career Planning for High Potential people.

Quite a few people in business have paired a liberal arts undergrad degree with an MBA. They seem to do just fine. But I think that's a missed opportunity -- much better would be an MBA on top of an engineering or math undergraduate degree. People with that combination are invaluable, and there aren't nearly enough of them running around.

As I think more about the 'why an MBA' .. my thinking more or less aligns with these statements
