RE: Value of an MBA
Quote:- MBA but with focus on BUSINESS ANALYTICS electives ( courses such as business intelligence, data mining, big data).
- From a (no name) university in South Asia
- For someone who has no real job experience or tech experience
- Has a life science degree
- Is looking to work in business analytics but doesnt want to go for another 3-4 year analytics bachelors or couldnt get into an MSc Business Analytics program.

What MBAs are good for:

1) Career change to a "prestigious" industry, e.g. engineering to finance/consulting
2) Qualifying for a promotion
3) Meeting de facto job requirement in industries that highly value prestige (see #1)
4) Networking for the above
5) Re-living the glory days of college

What MBAs are not good for:

1) Learning things (you can learn that shit at the public library)
2) Getting a job that doesn't care about prestige (e.g. basically anything that is not finance, consulting, or upper management in tech)

So to answer your question, the answer is no. You can learn business analytics for free on the internet, and I don't care what degree or certifications you have. I can tell whether you have the technical ability to do the job in a one hour interview.
