Get a full time 2 year MBA so you can do an internship and get a full time offer. Executive programs are for those looking to stay at their current roles or start their own companies. MBA is targeted to those wanting to get management/leadership experience whereas certificate programs are there to help you gain specific skills for a technical position.

Honestly Speaking it all depends on your career goals and your aims sometimes even a Certification is more than enough depending on which position you want to approach

Hi Lavee,

It is good to Choose MBA over PMP program . But MBA is bit costly depends upon which school and country you choose.

If you don't have any problems in finance then choose MBA for better ROI.

As Eshan said , It is entirely depend on your goal .

All the best.

A 2Y MBA will position you better if you are looking for career change, if you are just looking to improve in your current role or within your organization then a certification or even a PTMBA might make sense for you. All of this depends on your development needs and career goals

Hello LaveeGorakhpuriya,

The question you should be asking yourself is not is MBA worth it, but what will I be doing 10 years from now if I do an MBA?
Will I be in the same industry? Will I be able to successfully pay off my MBA student debt?
Will my MBA be enough to help me in my career progression?

Take help of people who have done MBA and ask them if it really helped them.
For a more detailed view, take help of people who are from different backgrounds with different WE and have done MBA from different places, ex: India, USA, Canada, Singapore.

You will get your answer.
Is MBA Worth It?
