Exactly - MBA by an Elite school, otherwise it is not worth much.

Better do CFA and CAIA - both are international degrees and cost you only the study material and the standardized international tests.

An MBA costs you an exorbitant amount of money, while a CFA & CAIA just costs you your time and effort. Also the tests are adjusting the passing levels on results of students worldwide - meaning you actually compete against the Chinese in a way. But that is also the reason why it is so highly valued. Either way - if you study hard you will pass anyway - at least there your effort is rewarded and you don't have to pay through the nose to get a degree that is ultimately almost worthless by most schools.

With the CFA and CAIA you have a better chance at securing a good job than with the average MBA. Harvard MBA is of course better, but if you don't have 100.000$ lying around then this is the way to go.

Also you might want to check out international accounting degrees as well as STEM degrees.

Good info also on http://captaincapitalism.blogspot.com/

Ah - another point is that the CFA and CAIA are international degrees and you can just as well get a job in Berlin, in Moscow or in Hong Kong.
