Quite a few colleagues are doing it. I’m in IBD, so it’s not like it’s crazy-popular like say in consulting, but quite a few have done it, and more are considering (like myself).
Most people I know that have done it have changed careers, and I think it’s quite an attractive proposition at this point. Getting a bit burned out and I think MBA might give me a fresh perspective on what I’d like to pursue.
Obviously downside is the application process, GMAT, and cost.
I occasionally think about doing one, but it’s the cost (more in terms of loss of earnings than actual outlay) that tends to put me off. Also, I’m getting a bit old for it perhaps. I think the biggest thing people seem to get out of an good MBA programme is a great network. That’s the main reason I’d do it.
